San Carlos General Election — The Candidate Forum.

September 8, 2011

Meet the Candidates.

Next Tuesday, the San Carlos Chamber of Commerce will host a forum where the general public can meet the different candidates who are running for City Council and City Treasurer positions.  The general election for all of these positions will be held on Tuesday, November 8th.   This forum will be a great opportunity to meet the various candidates, and hear in their own words why they're best fit to serve in these positions.   The event will even be televised live on the San Carlos Channel for those who can't make it down there on Tuesday.

Here's the complete press release on the forum, with all of the details about the time and location:

San Carlos, CA – September 7, 2011 – The San Carlos Chamber of Commerce will host a Candidates Forum in preparation for the November 8, 2011 General Municipal Election. The forum will feature candidates running for the offices of City Council and City Treasurer.

    Thanks for posting this. I wish I could be there to ask questions, I really want to hear what Olbert has to say, but I appreciate its being broadcast. I believe the San Carlos channel is 27, not 26. I might be wrong, but it wouldn’t hurt to check.
