The People's Democratic Club will offer Santa Cruz residents their first opportunity to hear the seven candidates for Santa Cruz City Council: Bruce Van Allen, Craig Bush, Leonie Sherman, Richelle Noroyan, Steven Pleich, Michael Pruger, Cynthia Chase and David Terrazas.
Nora Hochman will facilitate the discussion. Questions will come from each co-sponsor before the discussion is opened to the audience for questions submitted on 3x5 cards.
The PDC will endorse up to three candidates at this meeting. To be eligible to vote, a PDC member must have paid dues for 2014-15. Anyone who has been a member for the past two years may bring their membership up to date by paying at the event. (Dues are now paid on an annual basis in July. Sliding scale dues; $10-$20 for students and low income; $20-$50 for general membership.)
PDC will host the forum with co-sponsors Desal Alternatives, Greater Santa Cruz Federation of Teachers, Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Alliance and Glass Ballot.
The forum is free and open to the public.
From 7pm - 9pm
Room 3 Louden Nelson Community Center, 301 Center Street Santa Cruz
Snacks will be provided.
