#LBMayoral Forum Video: See What the Top Candidates for Mayor Have to Say About Livability

Video from last Tuesday’s #LBMayoralForum with Doug Otto, Richard Camp, Councilmember Robert Garcia, Councilmember Gerrie Schipske and Assembly Member Bonnie Lowenthal can be found above. We’re posting the video without comment, but if you want to read a condensed version, Brian Addison posted a recap after the forum at LongBeachize.

After the primary election is over, we will break down the video with just the two remaining candidates for easy comparison.

Two quick notes:

1) I didn’t hit record in time to catch all of the opening statements. To be fair, all intro statements have therefore been removed; if you want to see everything that was broadcast at Streetsblog TV, click here.

2) To preserve power, we weren’t stationed near an outlet and it takes a lot of energy to record and live stream at the same time; therefore, we didn’t record the questions asked by moderator Allan Crawford. However, we pasted the text of the questions into the “about” section for each video.
