Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and his main challenger City Councilor Tito Jackson will attend two separate community conversations in Jamaica Plain this week. And you have the opportunity to ask the candidates questions before the events.

The JP Progressives are hosting the two public conversations: Tito Jackson on Tuesday at 7 pm and Mayor Walsh on Thursday at 7:30 pm. It is free to attend either event, but registration is requested. Please register here for the conversation with Jackson, and register here for the conversation with Walsh. Both events will be at the First Baptist Church's community room (633 Centre St.).

District 7 City Councilor Tito Jackson announced his candidacy for Boston mayor on Jan. 12, 2017 outside of the Haley House Cafe.

"Our neighborhood and our city has an important decision to make: what issues will we prioritize, and what solutions will we work on, over the next four years?" said an email blast from JP Progressives about the events. "For so many challenges -- from housing and education to racial and economic justice -- voting for the mayor of Boston is our biggest opportunity to improve our city. While national politics may dominate the news, the mayor's race is just around the corner. On Tuesday and Thursday, it's JP's chance to show up and make our voices heard!"

Mayor Walsh addresses the audience with JP resident Heidi Schork, director of the Mayor's Mural Crew looking on.
