That's mayoral candidate Dwight Evans answering a question as part of a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center to involve Philadelphia public high school students in city politics, and eventually boost voter participation rates for young people. The forum, taped at Channel 6 for airing April 10, included all five Democratic candidates - Marty Weinberg (left rear), Happy Fernandez (behind Evans) talking to John White Jr., and John Street (not shown) - and a student representative from each of the 33 schools involved in the project, Student Voices '99.
