Last night, we went with Mayor Dave down to the mayoral forum held at the Concourse Hotel by a group of young professionals.

Safety was a big theme for the debate, and Mayor Dave talked about his new, 100,000 dollar downtown safety plan, which has been getting rave reviews. He also talked about the need to address the root causes of crime and some of the ways his administration has done that, including investing in after-school programs.

Mayor Dave was asked about how he plans to prevent young people from coming to UW-Madison, receiving a degree, and quickly moving on to other cities. He talked about the need to keep jobs here in Madison. The best way to do this, he said, is to make sure downtown Madison is a vibrant community and an attractive option for students and young professionals to call home.

The Capital Times, The Daily Cardinal and The Badger Herald all covered the debate.
