Candidate Forum September 8, 2010

All of the candidates for San Leandro Mayor and City Council are expected to participate in a candidate forum on Wednesday, September 8, 2010. The forum will be held at the Marina Community Center and is being hosted by the Washington Homeowners, Floresta Homeowners, and Broadmoor Neighborhood Associations.

Pauline Cutter and Corina Lopez are the candidates for the District 5 City Council seat, David Anderson and Michael Gregory for the District 1 City Council seat and Stephen Cassidy, Sara Mestas, John Palau, Tony Santos, and Joyce Starosciak are the candidates for Mayor. Diana Souza will also be on-hand, but faces no opponent and will retain her District 3 City Council seat.

Bob Leigh, the committee chair for the event, stated that the City Council candidates will be first and the mayoral candidates will be last, in order to accommodate Santos, who will be attending an earlier event that evening. Candidates will be allowed a two-minute opening statement, followed by questions from the audience and a closing two-minute statement. Interest in the event has been so great, according to Leigh, that the forum was moved to the Titan Auditorium to accommodate a larger crowd.

The forum will be held from 7 to 9pm on Wednesday, September 8, 2010, at the Marina Community Center, located at 15301 Wicks Boulevard in San Leandro.
