Meet the Candidates (In Less Fun Format)

All hopes for a good, old fashioned, zinger laced debate between the candidates for elected office in the City of San Carlos are officially dashed. Instead, we’re going to have a forum.

The SC Chamber of Commerce is hosting the event scheduled for next Tuesday, September 13th.

For those unfamiliar with the distinction between the two Q&A public events, a forum is the boring cousin of the debate, informative yet a whole lot less fun to watch.  Forget any possibility of face-to-face confrontations and comebacks which give a sneak peek at how the candidates may behave behind closed doors or in a public meeting.

Not that voters shouldn’t watch the Candidates forum.  They should.  Any opportunity to learn where candidates stand on the issue should be seized!  Just don’t expect the level of excitement to be had at a nicely charged debate.

Businessman Ron Collins, SC School Board Trustee Mark Olbert and incumbent Randy Royce will share their views at the forum in the contested race for two open seats on the City Council.

City Treasury incumbent Michael Galvin will make his case for votes alongside challenger Harold Schuette in the November 8th election.

When:  Tuesday, September 13th 7pm

Where:  SC City Hall, City Council Chambers, 600 Elm Street, San Carlos (doors open at 6:30pm)

–Free and open to public

James Fahnestock, Forum Moderator

Moderating the Fourm:  Jim Fahnestock of Edward Jones Investments

Can You Watch it on TV?  Yes; broadcast live on Comcast Cable TV Channel 26 and on the City of San Carlos website.
