Loyola will host the 2006 New Orleans mayoral runoff debate on Thursday, May 11, at 7 p.m., in Nunemaker Auditorium located in Monroe Hall on the university’s main campus. The debate is open to the public.

WVUE Fox 8 will televise the event live beginning at 7 p.m. Anchor John Snell, who is well-known for his lively and no-nonsense style, will moderate the debate. The debate will last one hour, followed by 30 minutes of questions from the audience.
