Public transportation and the environment will be among the policy issues discussed by candidates for Los Angeles city attorney, controller and city council at a forum on Monday.

The day-long event at the California Endowment will be hosted by the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, Climate Resolve and the League of Conservation Voters.

City Attorney Carmen Trutanich and his opponent Assemblyman Mike Feuer will be the first panel of the day. In the afternoon, the candidates for city controller, Dennis Zine and Ron Galperin, will meet. In between, candidates and representatives for council districts one, six, nine and thirteen will participate.

Streetsblog LA will live stream the event. The forum is also free and open to the public, though a RSVP is required. Registration is available here
