The Sierra Club Yolano Group and the Davis Neighborhood Coalition Plan a City Council Candidates Forum

Please come to the Community Chambers on Wednesday, April 30 at 7:00 PM to hear candidates for the Davis City Council answer questions regarding important environmental, neighborhood and community issues. The council candidate forum is sponsored by the Sierra Club Yolano Group and the Davis Neighborhood Coalition. The forum, which will run until 9:30, will also be recorded and broadcast live on our local government channel. Candidates will answer questions submitted by Sierra Club and the Neighborhood Coalition and also take questions from the floor. The Community Chambers are located at 23 Russell Boulevard in Davis.

Attending or watching a forum is a great way to participate in the political process. The format of this forum is designed to provide an educational experience for the public regarding the views of the City Council candidates. The public will have the opportunity to review the questions and background materials at the beginning of the forum, and to participate by submitting their own questions.

This forum has been timed so that voters can make informed decisions when voting for the Davis City Council. The absentee ballots for this election start going out on May 5. The last day to register to vote is May 19, and election day is June 3.

For more information regarding the forum, please contact DNC Chair, Holly Bishop at 753-2773 or Yolano Group co-chairs Pam Nieberg at 756-6856 and Stacie Frerichs at 758-0807.
