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, and 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. The debate previously scheduled for October 19 has been cancelled.

The general election is right around the corner, and right on time we’re presenting a series of candidate forums to help you decide who to vote for in these vital local elections.

Due to the COVID pandemic both forums will be held virtually via zoom and you can watch them at our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel — or on this page (scroll down below).

SUPERVISORIAL DISTRICTS 1 & 2

If you want to send questions for us the candidates please email questionsforcandidates2020@yahoo.com 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.
