Be an Informed Voter – Attend a Candidate Forum
There is nothing like watching candidates for office to help you decide how to vote. As they answer carefully developed questions about the issues facing a Board or Council, you will learn a lot about them and the issues facing elected officials.
WE Watch and our co-sponsors do not endorse candidates but we do believe it is very important that citizens be as well informed as possible when they vote. Consequently the Board is co-sponsoring three forums. Please help us get the word out by telling your friends about the forums.
If you have questions, please call (1-805-693-1386) or e-mail Nancy Emerson at email@example.com
