June 3rd election candidate forums
Submitted By Suzanne Barba
ItÕs the election season, and the Eden Chapter of the League of Women Voters (LWV) believes that candidates should have an opportunity to present their vision and qualifications for running for office and to answer questions from their constituents. The LWV also believes that constituents become educated voters when they attend these candidate forums and have the opportunity to listen and ask questions if they like.
There will be many races on the June 3 ballot and the League has selected five of them that are contested and of local interest. Dates and venues have not yet been confirmed. Candidate forums will be held for:
U.S. Representative, 15th District
State Assembly, 20th District
Alameda County Supt. of Schools
Mayor of Hayward
Hayward City Council (2 seats)
All candidates are offered free web-space on SmartVoter (www.smartvoter.org), to help inform constituents.
