Alhambra Preservation Group to host “Meet the Candidates” forum 10/5

Location

Alhambra , CA United States

Alhambra Preservation Group, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, Pasadena Area, will sponsor a 2016 Meet the Candidates Forum on Wednesday, October 5, 2016. Alhambra City Council candidates, who are running for office in the November election, will field questions from community members about a variety of issues facing Alhambra.

The Meet the Candidates Forum will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 in the Lakeview Room of Almansor Court, 700 South Almansor Street, Alhambra, CA 91801. The event is free to the public and light refreshments will be served.

All Alhambra City Council candidates will participate in the pre-election event. (Please see the list of Alhambra City Council candidates below) The moderator from the League of Women Voters, Pasadena Area will ask each candidate to make an opening statement, followed by a series of questions from the audience. The forum will close with closing statements from each of the candidates. “The League of Women Voters Pasadena Area, a non-partisan organization, produces forums as a service to voters, as we have done since 1920, the year that women were included as voters in the United States,” stated Yvonne Pine, with the League of Women Voters Pasadena Area.  “Our mission is to encourage informed voting.  For more voting information check out our website at www.LWV-PA.org and www.VotersEdge.org,” continued Pine.

Community planning, schools, environmental sustainability, public health and safety, historic preservation, transportation, development and infrastructure are just a few of the topics that may be discussed at the event. The November 8 election will decide two of five Alhambra City Council seats. “The purpose of the Meet the Candidates Forum is to give city council candidates an opportunity to address policy issues vital to Alhambra’s future,” stated Joyce Amaro, President of the Alhambra Preservation Group. “Given the many issues facing our city, we invite all Alhambrans to attend this event and receive the information they need to cast an informed vote on Election Day.”
