On Sunday January 23, from 2 – 5 p.m. The Neighborhood News will be sponsoring the 2011 CD10 Candidates Forum. Registration starts at 2 and the event starts promptly at 2:30.
It isn’t necessary but it would be helpful if you could RSVP to
firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on coming.
Did you know the election for CD10 Council Representative is coming up on March 8?
Do you know anything about the 5 Candidates who are running against incumbent Herb Wesson?
The Neighborhood News is providing an opportunity for you to meet them in person and find out why they want your vote.
Kary Earl from Earlez Grille has generously offered to provide his space for the event and Rick Cryer, chef to the Stars, is cooking up a $10 lunch plate of Jumbalaya, salad, role and soft drink. All the candidates with the exception of Councilman Wesson have agreed to participate. They are Chris Brown, Austin Dragon, Andrew Kim, Luis Montoya, Althea Rae Shaw.
We will have a moderator, Damien Goodmon, and a set of questions developed by a panel of 7 local residents from varying Neighborhood Council districts with a history of community activism. The candidates will be allowed a timed response with a follow up question by the moderator if necessary. There will be questions from the audience at the end.
These elections typically go unnoticed but The Neighborhood News wants to support community involvement in the issues that affect them.
We hope you will take the time to attend this exciting local event. Meet your neighbors, hear local issues discussed and have a delicious lunch.
The address is 3630 Crenshaw Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90016. Just below Exposition on the east side. You will see the big CHILI sign.
