Local voters mark your calendars: Candidate forums for local city council races are just around the corner.
The four candidates running for two seats on the Atherton City Council will face off from 7:30 to 9 p.m. tonight at a forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters, in the Pavilion at Holbrook-Palmer Park, 150 Watkins Ave. in Atherton.
The candidates -- David Henig, incumbent Kathy McKeithen, Richard Moore and Elizabeth Lewis -- will be given time for opening and closing statements, and will field questions from a moderator.
A Menlo Park City Council candidates forum, also hosted by the League of Women Voters, will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8, in the council chambers at the Civic Center, between Laurel and Alma streets.
The forum will feature the three council candidates: Rick Ciardella and incumbents Andy Cohen and Kelly Fergusson.
Both forums will be taped and later broadcast on cable channel 27, and online through the Palo Alto-based Media Center's Web site, www.CommunityMediaCenter.net. The forums will not be broadcast live.
