Don't miss a rare opportunity to get face to face with all 16 mayoral candidates of San Francisco and hear them address the issues you come face to face with every day: Muni, parks, pensions, open government, the budget and more. INFORUM and the Summer of Smart are teaming up to produce the electoral event in the race for the city's mayor. In this two-hour program, candidates will get up on one stage to discuss the topics San Franciscans are concerned about most. Ask them your own questions, and hear the Summer of Smart’s contest winners present their own innovative ideas to the mayoral candidates on how to address some of San Francisco’s most important issues. This is a night you don’t want to miss!

We’re teaming up with Huffington Post SF to collect the best questions and comments from you before the event. The authors of the top three questions, revealed Wednesday, October 5, will be invited to the debate to ask the candidates in person. Leave your question in the comments of the Huff Post article, or tweet your question with the hashtag #inforumsf.
