Candidate Forum in Redding October 8

The League of Women Voters® of the Redding Area (LWVRA) and the First United Methodist Church will be co-sponsoring a Candidate Forum for the special election, scheduled for November 5th, to fill the vacant California State Assembly, District 1 seat. That forum will be held on Tuesday, October 8th, at the First United Methodist Church, 1825 East Street in Redding from 6 to 8 p.m. The doors will open to the public at 5:30 p.m.

This forum will be moderated by the LWVRA and attendees will have the opportunity to submit written questions to be asked of the candidates. Also both candidates will be available to talk with individual attendees following the question/answer session.

There are two candidates who have qualified for this election (the “top two” from the special primary election held on August 27). They are Megan Dahle and Elizabeth Betancourt. Both have confirmed that they will participate in this forum.

    Hopefully there will be enough questions on the climate crisis that we get to know how well informed each candidate is on the scientific realities of AGW.

    Checking the Buffalo News, Josh Allen played at UW, I read where a dairy farmer has quit his dairy because he couldn’t make a living and is now leasing his farm land to a San Diego Solar company to build a solar farm. In western New York, not exactly sunny Arizona.
    Like wind farms in Wyoming the reason California companies are going out of state is for one main reason, lack of space in California to build these massive solar and wind farms.
