The Los Angeles County Business Federaion, in partnership with the Daily News of Los Angeles, is hosting a mayoral forum at California State University, Northridge.
Candidates Eric Garcetti, Wendy Greuel, Kevin James, Jan Perry and Emanuel Pleitez are taking part. Austin Beutner, former special deputy to Mayor Villaraigosa and founder of Evercore Partners, is serving as moderator.
The forum is expected to expand the scope of the conversation about local business, covering not only citywide issues, but also the regional impact of this year's mayoral contest. Specifically, the candidates will have an opportunity to share their views on such issues as Metro, the goods movement sector, tourism, economic development, workforce training, housing and other issues where the City of Los Angeles affects the entire region.
A reception will be help at 9 a.m., followed by the debate at 10 a.m.
