MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — 830 WCCO is announcing a Minneapolis Mayoral Debate, one week prior to Election Day.

The debate will be held Tuesday, Oct. 29, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. — hosted by WCCO Radio’s own John Williams and political commentator Blois Olson. It will be held at the WCCO Radio Cambria Gallery on 7th at 7th Avenue and 2nd Street South in downtown Minneapolis.

Leading candidates for Minneapolis Mayor Mark Andrew, Betsy Hodges, Don Samuels, Cam Winton, Jackie Cherryhomes and Dan Cohen will participate in a 50,000 watt live mayoral candidate debate one week before Election Day.

Twin Cities media is invited to cover the event as John Williams and Blois Olson discuss the biggest issues facing the city’s next leader. Topics will include property taxes, minimum wage, the new Vikings Stadium and other hot-button issues.

It will be the final major opportunity for each of these candidates to set themselves apart before voters head to the polls.

The live debate from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. will be preceded by an interview (taped) with Mayor R.T. Rybak, reflecting on his time in office.

The public is invited to attend.

Listen live to the debate as it happens on 830 WCCO and on WCCO.COM.
