MENDOCINO Co., 8/4/20 — If you’re undecided about who to vote for on a local level, a debate is a great way to get a feel for the candidates, and we will be hosting the Mendocino County supervisorial & Ukiah City Council forums Oct. 5 & 8 at 7 p.m., in conjunction with the Ukiah Daily Journal, the American Association of the University Women, & the Mendocino Women’s Political Coalition.
SUPERVISORIAL DISTRICTS 1 & 2
We had originally planned to host forums for both District 1 and District 2 on Monday, Oct. 5. However, candidate Mari Rodin suffered an unexpected medical issue and the District 2 forum is being rescheduled to later in the month. We will proceed with the District 1 forum, featuring Glenn McGourty and Jon Kennedy. We will also give Councilwoman Maureen Mulheren time to make a comment, and a proxy for former councilwoman Mari Rodin will also make a statement.
If you want to send questions for us the candidates please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask away. Otherwise you will be able to ask questions in the Facebook and YouTube comment sections during the forum. And even if you can’t watch live, the videos will be available afterwards.
