The Metro Omaha Property Owners Association is hosting a public forum for the city’s candidates for mayor.
All five mayoral candidates are scheduled to attend Monday’s forum at the Westside Community Conference Center, 3534 S. 108th St. The event will run from 6:45 to 8:45 p.m.
There is no charge to attend and the public is welcome.
Mayor Jim Suttle, a Democrat seeking a second term, has agreed to attend, as have his four opponents: State Sen. Brad Ashford, businessman Dave Nabity, City Councilwoman Jean Stothert and former council President Dan Welch.
Ashford is running as an independent, while the other three challengers are Republicans.
Omaha’s primary election is in April, followed by the general election in May. All Omaha city offices are elected on an officially nonpartisan basis.
