Candidates Forum

March 22nd, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

Pasadena-based nonprofit organization Leadership Pasadena will host a televised candidates forum for local school board and city council candidates. The event will take place at Caltech’s Beckman Institute Auditorium, on Saturday, February 21st, beginning at 2:30 pm. The forum will be moderated by Tami DeVine of Crown City News.
After the candidates make brief opening statements, a question and answer period will follow, with questions selected from audience member submissions.
“Given the challenges facing Pasadena, including traffic, affordable housing, development, public schools, and economic issues, we are expecting to see some tough, probing questions for the candidates,” said Leadership Pasadena graduate and board member, Gordon Squires.
Heidi Bloks, also a Leadership Pasadena graduate and board member, explained the motivation for hosting the forum. “Leadership Pasadena’s mission is to help emerging leaders reach their full potential. In this forum, the candidates will be challenged to explain how they plan to be leaders in our city, and they will be required to respond directly to the issues that are important to their constituents,” said Bloks.
Parking and entry into the auditorium are free, and the event is open to the general public. For more information contact the organizers at gradnet@leadershippasadena.org.
