This event will include an hour-long mayoral debate with candidates Denise Mitchell and Patrick Wojahn.

The debate will be followed by a half-hour forum with District 3 City Council candidates: Ryan Belcher, Robert Day, Robert McCeney, John Rigg, and Stephanie Stullich.

Sponsored by the District 3 civic associations, the event will be held at 7:30 p.m. on tonight at the College Park City Hall, 4500 Knox Road in College Park. Free.

The debate moderator will be Shawn Anderson, the afternoon anchor on WTOP and a College Park resident. He has previously moderated several state and local debates, including a 2014 gubernatorial debate between Anthony Brown and Larry Hogan.

“This is local politics at its very best,” says Anderson. “There’s rarely been a contested mayor’s race in College Park, and now we have two equals going against each other at a very important time in the city’s history. I’m looking forward to hearing what Denise Mitchell and Patrick Wojahn have to say.”
