Watch the municipal candidates talk about the issues ahead of the Oct. 2 election.

Municipal candidates took the stage Thursday night at the KTOO studio, hoping to earn some votes as the Oct. 2 election quickly approaches.

The forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters of Juneau and co-hosted by the Empire and KTOO, began at 7 p.m. The three Board of Education candidates (vying for three spots) had 30 minutes of discussion, and the final 90 minutes was devoted to the Assembly and mayoral candidates.
