All three candidates for Las Cruces mayor have confirmed their participation in an Oct. 8 forum, according to a news release from the event’s organizers.
The candidates on the ballot for the Nov. 3 election are Ken Miyagishima, the incumbent; Miguel Silva, who is vacating his city council seat to run for mayor; and business owner Gina Montoya-Ortega.
The forum will be held at Nopalito’s Galeria, 326 S. Mesquite St., from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8. It will be filmed, and organizers say NMPolitics.net will be able to run video of the entire forum once it’s available.
