A series of forums is planned before the November general election, when Cassie Franklin and Judy Tuohy will compete for the job. Both advanced from last month’s primary.

The first forum is set for 7:30 a.m. Thursday at the Weyerhaeuser Room at Everett Station. The host is the Housing Consortium of Everett &Snohomish County. The audience will have time to submit questions. The event is expected to wrap up around 9 a.m. The cost is $15 in advance and $20 at the door and includes a breakfast buffet. To register, call 425-339-1015 or go tot www.housingsnohomish.org.

Another forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. Sept. 11 at Evergreen Middle School. Sponsors include a number of neighborhood organizations. The event is expected to be livestreamed on the Everett Public Library’s Facebook page.

The neighborhood groups also plan another forum, this time for City Council and Everett School District candidates, at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 18 at the same school. Volunteers are needed for both events. For more information, call 425-257-8717.

The mayoral candidates will meet again Sept. 26 for a forum hosted by the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

The focus will be on issues related to mental health and substance abuse, organizers said. The plan is 7 p.m. at school district headquarters at 3900 Broadway.
