A forum for the candidates running for San Luis Obispo City Council will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday at the San Luis Obispo City Hall, Council Chambers, 990 Palm St.

At stake are two four-year council seats belonging to John Ashbaugh and Dan Carpenter, as well as the mayoral seat, held by Jan Marx, which is a two-year term. All three incumbents are seeking re-election. Challengers for mayor are architect Steve Barasch and artisan Donald Hedrick.

Opponents seeking the open council seats are firefighter Kevin Rice and history teacher Jeff Aranguena. Matt Strzepek dropped out of the race Sept. 6.
