CORRECTION: The event will be held at the Fullerton Public Library’s Community Room at 353 W. Commonwealth Ave., right next to city hall. Same free parking lot.

The League of Women Voters of North Orange County will host a forum for the twelve candidates running for three open seats on the Fullerton City Council this election cycle. The forum will be held in the chambers of the Fullerton City Council located on the first floor of City Hall, 303 W. Commonwealth Ave. The forum will be held in the Community Room of the Fullerton Public Library located at 353 W. Commonwealth Ave., right next to Fullerton City Hall. There is ample free parking in the lot next to City Hall or the one across Amerige.

The Rag commends the LWV of NOC for organizing this forum each election year. Unfortunately it is the only such forum scheduled this year. Candidates will be asked questions submitted by audience members through a moderator (all candidates will be given the opportunity to answer each question as it is asked).

This is your chance to ask the candidates their positions on issues like high density development, the preservation of Coyote Hills, Short Term Rentals, financial stability fort the city, how to fix the streets, and whatever else you might think important to know before deciding which three candidates will earn your vote this year.

Oddly, notice of the meeting neither appears on the City of Fullerton’s website or the website of the League of Women Voters, so please help spread the work by passing this message around.

The forum is not scheduled to be broadcast live, but it will be recorded and available later on the city’s website. If it is at all possible, I’ll post the recording to the Fullerton Rag’s YouTube channel. In the meantime, all residents are encouraged to attend the forum Thursday night, because, you know, democracy…
