All five candidates have confirmed they’ll attend the forum on Friday.

The forum was originally scheduled for last week Tuesday but rescheduled for this Friday because of last week’s brutal cold.

The 40th Ward forum is being co-organized by the League of Women Voters of Chicago, Bowman Community Organization, Mikva Challenge, Heart of Lincoln Square Neighbors Association and the Andersonville South Neighborhood Association. 

The forum will be live streamed on the Andersonville South Neighborhood Organization’s Facebook page, according to Mia Furlong, one of the forum’s organizers.
