District 1 Candidates Forum
Associated Student Government holds District 1 Candidates Forum May 8
The Associated Student Government at Fresno City College is hosting a Candidates Forum on Thursday, May 8, 2014 for candidates in the District 1 Fresno City Council race. The Candidates Forum will be held in the FCC Theatre from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. A reception will be held prior to the forum at 4 p.m.
All candidates for District 1 have been invited to attend. Lawrence Cano, Mark Castro, Cary Catalano, Rebeca Rangel and Esmeralda Soria have confirmed their attendance. Candidates Rama Dawar and Jackson Sheperd have not yet confirmed.
Dr. James Joseph, Fresno City College political science instructor, will serve as moderator. Each candidate will be asked pre-determined questions that were submitted by faculty and students. The general public will have an opportunity to submit questions in writing the day of the event prior to its beginning. The questions will then be considered for inclusion.
“Since some of the students come to Fresno City College, whether they live in District 1 or not, they are affected by the decisions made at the City Council level,” said Ignacio Barbosa, an Associated Student Government senator. “We felt that it was important for students to hear what the city council candidates say as to why they feel they can represent Fresno City College’s interests.”
The primary election for District 1 is June 3.
