District 5 City Council Candidates at Second Candidate Forum

The District 5 San Leandro City Council candidates met at a second forum on Thursday, September 30, 2010, to make their case to San Leandro voters. San Leandro School Board Trustee Pauline Cutter and Human Resources Commissioner Corina Lopez are both seeking the seat currently held by Bill Stephens, who cannot run for re-election because of term limits. The forum, sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce, was held at the Marina Community Center.
