The Forum that was not to be, and the reception that remains

In today's climate, it is vitally important for people to get in front of candidates well before sitting down with their ballots and the voters pamphlet. 

Who are you choosing to elect? Anyone can write the right things, but do the people themselves have authenticity, integrity, intelligence, and listening skills?

There are precious few forums organized in the area that give voters the opportunity to see candidates in person, but also to hear them in action, responding in real time to questions and differing points of view.

One such forum was planned for October 17, to be held at the Crest Theater with a meet and greet following at the Ridgecrest Public House, the corporate sponsor of the forum. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. 

Senator Maralyn Chase, challenger Deputy Mayor Jesse Salomon, and Representative Cindy Ryu confirmed. Candidate Lauren Davis had a conflict, but would have sent a representative to read her responses to questions. Candidate Frank Deisler had a conflict, and did not take up the offer to respond to questions. And Candidate Dio Boucsieguez did not respond at all.

And so the forum was cancelled. However, there is interest and energy among these candidates to meet the public. So, with the gracious support of the Ridgecrest Pub, the reception is ON.

Please join us for this informal chance to talk with candidates:
