Last night’s debate drew over 400 spectators at The Empowerment Temple. Six candidates were present. Mayor Rawlings-Blake was not in attendance. According to the Mayor’s twitter account, she visited several Night Out events throughout the city.

The Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, pastor of the Empowerment Temple, called out Rawlings-Blake in his opening remarks. “Having not the luxury to address the black church tonight, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake,” said Bryant, pausing as audience members shook their heads.

Moderator Michael Steele raised several issues for the candidates to debate including poor test scores in city schools and teachers cheating on grading tests.

There will be another forum Thursday on disabilities. For more on this story, click here.
