The panel is nonpartisan. The focus will not be on the merits of either candidate, but on what policies they could implement that would most benefit American cities.
“City government doesn't need to be partisan,” Cornett said. “And from that respect, we've got to hear from both candidates on these issues.”
Others on the panel are Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock; Sacramento, Calif., Mayor Kevin Johnson; Mesa, Ariz., Mayor Scott Smith; and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.
