Candidates for mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish will gather Tuesday for a forum hosted by The Advocate and Louisiana Public Broadcasting.

The 90-minute forum will take place live at LPB’s Baton Rouge studios. It will be shown on theadvocate.com and on lpb.org starting at 10 a.m.

Scheduled to take part are incumbent Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, former state Rep. Steve Carter, attorney E Eric Guirard, state Rep. Denise Marcelle, businessman Jordan Piazza and Metro Councilman Matt Watson.

Topics for discussion will range widely, from law enforcement and coronavirus to St. George and flood protection. Questions will come from reporters, with some chosen from those submitted by the public.

The candidates will meet in the primary election Nov. 3, with a runoff Dec. 5 if needed.
