Late last month, NinetyNine sent out word that April is abuzz with mayoral-campaign activities at WHYY.

Last week, we hosted a lively “City Council Candidates Convention,” which was sponsored by the good people at Young Involved Philadelphia and the Committee of Seventy.

Next week, we have a pair of events on the schedule. Details about the events and how to register are below:

Tuesday

The “City and Self: Bringing Humanity To Work” event will explore how to involve civic interests in day-to-day lives.

Each week in her blog “Human at Work,” Susan Richardson explores how we bring spirituality and our full humanity to work with us. The assistant minister of Christ Church in Philadelphia, Susan speaks to experts, business leaders and regular folks about how self and work intersect – whether it’s through purpose, ethics, spirituality or work-life balance.

Join Susan for a discussion with Philadelphians about finding meaning in the work we do, and connecting it with the city around us.

This event is co-sponsored by Christ Church. Doors open at 6 p.m. for an event which will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Christ Church Neighborhood House, 20 N. American St. (west side of Second Street between Filbert and Market sts.)

Registration is available via this link.

Wednesday

For all you early birds out there (and free-breakfast enthusiasts), the WHYY-Penjerdel Council Mayoral Forum will run from 8 to 9:30 a.m.

Doors open at 7:30 a.m. (150 N. Sixth St.) with the candidates forum and interviews to follow from 8 to 10 a.m.

The event is described as such: “Join WHYY and The Penjerdel Council for a mayoral forum moderated by WHYY’s Chris Satullo and PlanPhilly’s Matt Golas. Unlike typical political debates, the mayoral candidates will be invited to present their positions on business and infrastructure issues in 15 minute interviews.”

To RSVP, please contact Emily Gann at egann@whyy.org.

Have any questions you’d like to see posed to the mayoral candidates at Wednesday’s forum? Please send them along to NinetyNine.
