With slightly different, but overcome, technical glitches this time, roughly 35 members of the public heard from candidates for 5 regional races, and a representative for County Measure W. The candidates answered two questions from the Club, and one question picked from the attendees. Afterwards, we had a lively discussion about the races, and about County Measures W and V. We want to thank everybody for their participation to inform the Club and the public.
We look forward to hosting our next forum and endorsement meeting on Thursday, October 15th for State Ballot Propositions. There are 12 this year! Stay tuned for the zoom meeting information.
The Club is proud to endorse at the 60% level the following candidates and ballot positions. All other candidates and ballot positions did not reach that threshold.
For Superior Court Judge, Office #2, we take no position
For AC Transit District Director, At-large we endorse Christian Peeples
For AC Transit District Director, Ward 1, we endorse Ben Fong
For BART Director, District 7, we endorse Lateefah Simon
