Seven of the Democratic candidates running for Maryland governor met for a town hall meeting Thursday evening. It was a way for voters to learn about the candidates.

Constituents and residents had the opportunity to hear each speak and answer questions. They also heard more about election agendas and positions on key regional and statewide issues.

Baltimore City residents were especially interested in the candidates' plans to make the city a more welcoming and safer place to live.

"When you see someone in person you can get a better feel their level of sincerity.  You can read more face to face and you have the benefit of hearing other peoples' perspectives," said resident, Debra Keller-Greene.

The Greater Baltimore Committee and Associated Black Charities hosted the forum.

Primaries are June 26.

Governor Larry Hogan is the sole GOP candidate running for a second term.
