Mayoral Candidates Shared In February Panel How They Will Support Creative Economy Growth

In preparation for the March 2018 City of Santa Fe mayoral election, the mayoral candidates were invited to share their positions and ideas about the creative economy at a public forum. The mayoral panel was moderated by local producer and radio host, Mary-Charlotte Domandi. The sold-out event was held at the New Mexico History Museum on Thursday, February 15th from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Community engagement for the event included crowdsourced questions that were distributed to every mayoral and city council candidate. Their responses to the questions and the video recording of the event are all archived below. 

Our friends at Fair Vote New Mexico provided information at the event on ranked choice voting. See the City of Santa Fe’s video below for more information on this new way to vote.
