The Jewish Press is inviting the community to attend a mayoral forum with Democratic candidates Bill de Blasio, John Liu, Christine Quinn, and Bill Thompson this Wednesday, May 29, at the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, 60 West End Avenue. The forum starts at 8:15 p.m. Attendees should arrive by 7:50 p.m.

The organizers have told Sheepshead Bites that Anthony Weiner was sent an invitation last week, after announcing his candidacy for mayor. He had not yet replied by the end of last week. 

Organizers have informed Sheepshead Bites that Anthony Weiner formally accepted their invitation, and will appear at the debate. (Updated 5/29/2013 at 1:00 p.m.)

If you have a question that you would like the candidates to answer, submit it via email to sgreenwald@jewishpress.com  (write “Mayoral forum” in the subject line), and The Jewish Press will select the best questions for inclusion in the forum.

    Is anyone making a video of this to post on SB? Now that Anthony Weiner is back in town, things should get really interesting. I just wish people would let go of the past and focus on the issues and on whether or not Weiner is qualified to be Mayor.

      I’m going to try, but it’s always a bit of a crap shoot to try and do big, well-covered events like this. Audio will likely be weak.

        If you’re shooting from the back of the room, and if it’s not a debate format and there’s a single podium, try to place a wireless mic on the podium or, if there’s a communal audio feed, try to plug in..

          I really want to go to this, and I’m only a block away, but, alas, I won’t be able to make it. But I’d love to hear what Weiner has to say, especially to his former constituents, many of whom miss him and feel robbed by his forced resignation. We’ve already heard from the others, but Weiner coming back to the nabe is hard news.
