Citizens have a chance to chat with City Council candidates face to face, and now they'll get to hear from mayoral candidates all in one place, too. The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philly.com and the Philadelphia Daily News will host a debate between the Democratic candidates Monday, May 4, at Temple University.

The event will be held in partnership with WHYY, the Committee of Seventy, 900-AM WURD, Technical.ly Philly, Temple's Center for Public Interest Journalism and Young Involved Philadelphia. All of the Democratic candidates have been invited to attend, with Lynne Abraham, Nelson Diaz, Jim Kenney, Doug Oliver and Anthony Williams confirmed thus far.

Though the debate is free and open to the public, registration is required, as the Temple Performing Arts Center can only hold so many people. Register now to ensure yourself a spot and tweet questions and issues you'd like covered at the debate to @phillydotcom using #NextMayorPHL.
