Ques­tions Sought For Can­di­date Fo­rum

Escalon Times - - FRONT PAGE -

The Escalon Cham­ber of Com­merce is plan­ning a Meet the Can­di­dates event later this month.

On Wed­nes­day, Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Escalon Com­mu­nity Cen­ter, the Cham­ber will be host­ing a “Can­di­dates for City Coun­cil Fo­rum.” This will be an op­por­tu­nity to meet the can­di­dates and hear their views on top­ics im­por­tant to the City.

“Each can­di­date will be given two min­utes for an open­ing state­ment at the start of the fo­rum and one minute for a clos­ing state­ment at the end,” ex­plained Cham­ber spokesper­son Pat Brown. “Each can­di­date will have one minute to re­spond. The time limit for the fo­rum is one hour and we will ask as many ques­tions as pos­si­ble dur­ing that time limit.”

To that end, the Cham­ber is look­ing for ques­tions to be posed to the can­di­dates.

“We are ask­ing the pub­lic to par­tic­i­pate by send­ing rel­e­vant ques­tions that af­fect our com­mu­nity to ei­ther our web­site escalon­cham­berof­com­merce.org or to our PO Box 222, Escalon 95320,” added Brown. “Ques­tions we re­ceive by Septem­ber 15 will be re­viewed by our fo­rum com­mit­tee and may be used at the event.”

Those seek­ing the two avail­able four-year terms on the coun­cil are in­cum­bents Ed Alves and Robert Swift, along with chal­lengers Peter Krume­ich, Will Smith and Richard Percey. Pre­vi­ously an­nounced can­di­date Stephanie En­nis Wiensz re­leased a state­ment this past week with­draw­ing from the race.

“Due to per­sonal health rea­sons I have de­cided not to run for City Coun­cil. I ap­pre­ci­ate all the sup­port I re­ceived,” En­nis Wiensz said in her state­ment.

Fol­low­ing the coun­cil fo­rum on Sept. 19, those at­tend­ing will be able to meet in­for­mally with the can­di­dates. Re­fresh­ments will also be served.
