Council District 13 candidates Mitch O'Farrell (the incumbent) and Hugo Soto-Martinez (the challenger) will face off this November. Scott Epstein, NCSA board member and recent candidate for council district 5, will moderate a conversation with them Sunday, August 14. If you have a question for one or both candidates, submit it via this Google form. (It might be asked—no promises!)


We'll also discuss (and our representatives will vote on) the draft wildlife ordinance, which our advocacy committee recommends we support.
Alison Simard, director of communications for Councilmember Paul Koretz, will be available to answer questions.
