AUBURN GRESHAM — Concerned Citizens of the 21st Ward will be hosting a candidate forum on Saturday.

The 21st Ward Candidate Forum will run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday at Brainerd Park Fieldhouse, 1246 West 92nd Street.

Incumbent Ald. Howard Brookins and his three challengers —Patricia Foster, Marvin McNeil and Ziegler Insurance Agency CEO Joseph Ziegler — have been invited to attend. The forum will be moderated by writer and legal analyst Exavier Pope, owner of 528 Media Group.

This is the second attempt for Foster, McNeil and Ziegler, all of whom previously ran against Brookins in 2015.

McNeil, a former city zoning code inspector, won enough votes to force a runoff but eventually lost. Foster and Ziegler tied for fourth place, each garnering 10 percent of the votes.

The organization requests that people attending Saturday’s event submit their questions prior to the forum. More information can be found here.
