On Wednesday, May 16, the Bal Theatre will host a debate for the candidates for the California State Assembly 18th District seat. If you want to meet, ask questions, and learn about your future representative in the California State Assembly, you will want to attend this forum, which starts at 7pm. The candidates are Rob Bonta, Abel Guillen, Joel Young and Rhonda Weber. The Halcyon Foothill Neighborhood Association, Best Manor Homeowners Association, Bay-O-Vista Homeowners Association, Heron Bay Homeowners Association, and Washington Manor Homeowners Associations are sponsoring the event and it will be moderated by San Leandro City Manager Chris Zapata. Light refreshments will be served on the rear patio from 6:30 to 7pm. The event is free and all are welcome.

Guillen is a Democrat elected to the Peralta Community College District Board of Trustees in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. Young is a Democrat appointed to the AC Transit Board of Directors in 2009 and elected in 2010. Bonta is a Democrat elected to the Alameda City Council in 2010. Weber is a Republican and small-business owner.

After the debate, there will be an Open Candidates Forum for all candidates appearing on the San Leandro ballot.

The candidates for the 18th Assembly District appeared yesterday at a forum sponsored by the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce.

After redistricting, the 18th Assembly District includes all of Alameda, San Leandro, and a large portion of Oakland. The candidates are vying to replace Sandre Swanson, who cannot run for re-election to the Assembly because of term limits.

The Bal Theatre is located at 14808 East 14th Street in San Leandro.
