CORPUS CHRISTI -
The public had an opportunity to meet Corpus Christi's mayoral candidates in person Thursday at a forum hosted by the League of Women Voters.
Corpus Christi's chapter of LWV held a candidate forum at City Hall, where each of the eight candidates for mayor gave an opening statement before answering questions about why they believe they're the right person for the job and how they'd tackle some of the key issues facing the city.
"This is a very important election. These are our tax dollars, this is our city and this person is representing us, not only here in the city but also in state issues and sometimes even a national issue," said Mary Jane Garza, President of LWV Corpus Christi, who said, "we need to make sure as a league that our voters are well informed, then encourage them to go and vote."
Early voting for the Special Election for mayor begins on Monday, with election day on May 6.
