The first of a year-long series of public forums sponsored by a broad-based civic coalition are set for later this month.
The races for mayor of Naples and three seats on City Council will be featured from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 25 and 27 respectively at Naples City Hall.
The events will be broadcast live on the city’s Comcast cable channel 98.
Incumbent Mayor John Sorey and City Council members Bill Barnett and Teresa Heitmann will face off Jan. 25, and council candidates Ellen Siegel, Reg Buxton, James Moon, Michelle McLeod and Wynn Phillips will discuss the issues on Jan. 27.
Election day in Naples is March 15. All the races are non-partisan. For council, the top three vote-getters win four-year terms.
