The Race for Mayor 2005: Of Politics and Policy

A Panel Discussion. In this election year, why have some issues been politically charged while others remain off the agenda?  Have the mayoral candidates offered meaningful visions of the future? What are the most pressing problems facing the next administration – and have the candidates offered valid solutions? A follow-up to the publication of "Framing the Debate 2005: Issues and Proposals for the Candidates."
