Denver Mayoral Debate: Education Edition

Candidates Kelly Brough and Michael Johnston offer their visions for the mayor’s voice in education.

What role can the mayor play in building strong public schools? How can the city and the school district work together to solve the pressing problems facing our youth? Can the mayor build effective partnerships and hold other elected officials accountable?

Join CBS News Colorado, Chalkbeat Colorado, and EDUCATE Denver from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 2, for a mayoral candidate debate focused on public education issues. Hear directly from Kelly Brough and Michael Johnston about how they would seek to work with Denver Public Schools during a critical juncture for the district and the community.

This event is free.

Please RSVP so that we know how many people to expect and so you can share the education questions you’d like to ask the candidates.

The debate will be moderated by CBS’ Shaun Boyd and Chalkbeat’s Melanie Asmar.
