Mosque hosting Metro North candidates forum Oct. 21

City Council candidates from four cities in the Metro North area are expected to be on hand Saturday, Oct. 21 for a candidates forum hosted by the Metropolitan North Islamic Center, Masjid Ikhlas.

Ihsan Riahi, outreach coordinator for the center, said it's the first time the mosque has hosted this kind of event for its members and for the public.

"I wanted to give an opportunity to our community and to the public to get to know who their candidates area," Riahi said. "It's not a debate. Rather, it's a chance for the candidates to talk, to meet their constituents. We are just keeping it simple."

The forum is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the mosque, 11141 N. Irma Dr. in Northglenn. It is free and open to the public.

Riahi said the mosque has invited mayoral and city council candidates from Broomfield, Northglenn, Thornton and Westminster. As of Tuesday, 11 candidates have agreed to come. They include;

Westminster Mayoral candidate Bruce Baker and City Council candidate Jackson Dreiling;

Northglenn Mayoral candidate Debbie Olander and City Council candidates Helmut Koeckert, Julie Duran Mullica and Danielle Henry;

Thornton City Council candidates David Acunto, Suzanne Brundage, Tracy Crespin and Seth Thomas.

Broomfield Mayoral candidate T.J Cole has also registered to attend, Riahi said.

Riahi said he hopes it's well attended.

"It is absolutely hard to tell. That's the honest answer," he said. "We are not sure because this is the first time we are doing it. It could be a mid-sized crowd to very full. It all depends."
