MVBA Mayoral Candidate Forum

  • 16 Feb 2016
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Belvedere Condominiums, Platinum Ball Room, 12th Fl

MVBA, in conjunction with the Charles Street Development Corporation, will be hosting a Mayoral Candidate Forum instead of our regular General Membership Meeting on Tuesday February 16th at 7:30 pm.

Belvedere & Co Events has generously offered to hold this forum in the Platinum Ballroom located on the 12th Floor of The Belvedere at 1. E Chase St.


The Forum will begin promptly at 7:30 pm, so please arrive before that time.

Format of Forum:


1.      Each candidate will have 8 minutes to address the audience.

       We have asked the candidates to split their time between

       a statement and taking questions from the audience.

       Please come prepared with questions.

2.      The Candidates will address the audience one at a time.

3.      The order of the candidates will be alphabetical; first by party,

       then by last name, as is shown below.

            All of the declared Mayoral Candidates have been invited to the forum. 19 Have RSVP’s. The Candidates will speak in the order listed here:


1.      Mr. Gersham Cupid

2.      Former Mayor Sheila Dixon

3.      Ms. Elizabeth Embry

4.      Mr. Patrick Gutierrez

5.      Councilman Nick Mosby

16.      Mr. Chukwuemeka Egwu

17.      Mr. Frank Logan

18.      Ms. Lavern Murray

We have heard from some community members that they would have preferred a smaller forum where only the frontrunners would have been invited. However, as a 501(c)(3) the MVBA is prevented by law from endorsing any political candidate, or party. Given such, we felt it important to invite all the candidates. All are of course free to leave at any time, though we ask that if you chose leave before the end of the forum to please do so quietly out of respect to the candidates and your fellow audience members.

Meeting space donated by Belvedere & Co, operators of the Owl Bar and the 13th Floor.
