Mayoral candidate forum on Houston planning this Saturday

Wanted to pass this event along to my readers, which should be quite interesting.  Unfortunately I will be at the conflicting Rethink Education Summit and won't be able to make it, but I'm looking forward to reading about it and hearing from any of you that do attend.

Mayoral Forum - Plan Houston: A Roadmap to Success
Hear the Candidates’ Strategies for Houston’s Growth

What: Hear Houston's top mayoral candidates address key components of Plan Houston strategies for growth and development, transportation/mobility, housing, neighborhoods, and infrastructure. Blueprint Houston has advocated for a general plan for Houston for more than a decade.
