SAN ANTONIO - The day before early voting kicked off in San Antonio, COPS/Metro Alliance hosted a community forum Sunday.

A large number of people filled the parish hall at St. Henry Catholic Church to hear from the candidates.

The event focused on immigration issues, living wage and job training programs.

Candidates for San Antonio mayor and City Council were invited to attend.
