Six candidates for St. Louis mayor participate in a forum on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017.

Last Wednesday, on Feb. 22, St. Louis Public Radio, in collaboration with 13 other community and media organizations, hosted a mayoral forum with six candidates who qualified ahead of the March primary. Joining the forum were: Antonio French (D),  Lyda Krewson (D), Jeffrey Boyd (D), Tishaura Jones (D), Andrew Jones (R), and Lewis Reed (D).

Journalists Rachel Lippmann and Jason Rosenbaum of St. Louis Public Radio, along with  Rebecca Rivas of the St. Louis American, asked questions of the candidates. Ruth Ezell of the Nine Network of Public Media moderated the forum.

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, St. Louis on the Air will air excerpts of the forum in two parts. This is the first part. You can find the whole, unedited audio from of the forum here. The second part of the forum can be heard here

The first part includes opening statements and questions on leadership, justice/policing and the candidates answers on all four ballot measures that voters will consider on the March and April ballots, including funding for a Major League Soccer stadium.
