CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A forum featuring candidates vying to succeed Mayor Ron Corbett in the City of Five Seasons is set for next month.

A Cedar Rapids Mayoral Candidate Forum is set for Thursday, October 19 at Whipple Auditorium within the Cedar Rapids Public Library on 5th Avenue.

2017 mayoral candidates including Kris Gulick, Scott Olson, Brad Hart, Gary Hinzman, Tim Pridegon, Jorel Robinson, Lemi Tilahun and Monica Vernon will be in attendance for the forum.

Corbett has served as the city's mayor since 2010, but announced in June he'd seek a run for governor, challenging current Gov. Kim Reynolds for the Republican nomination during next year's primary.

The event, which will run from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.
