Each organization will ask questions which are relevant to their mission, giving voters an opportunity to hear how the candidates stand on a variety of issues. All eight candidates who have filed papers to run for Districts 1 and 2 have been invited to participate in this forum.
District 1 covers Ferndale, Holmes, Honeydew, Hookton, Loleta, Pepperwood, Petrolia, Redcrest, Scotia, Shively, Stafford, and parts of southern Eureka.
District 2 includes Alderpoint, Benbow, Briceland, Bridgeville, Carlotta, Dinsmore, Ettersberg, Fortuna, Garberville, Myers Flat, Phillipsville, Redway, Rio Dell, Shelter Cover, and Weott.
To accommodate voters who live in the more southerly sections of District 2, the forum will be simulcast by KMUD at the Mateel Community Center, 59 Rusk Lane in Redway.
It will be moderated by Lorna Bryant and recorded to air quickly after on Access Humboldt.
This event is free and open to the public. Childcare is available on-site through College of the Redwoods’ Child Development Department; if you require child care, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by January 22nd (we need an accurate count of children so we know how many teachers are needed).
