Election: Candidates forum set for Atherton City Council seats

Candidates for the two open Atherton City Council seats will be given a chance to state their positions and answer questions at a forum set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, in the Holbrook-Palmer Park Pavilion.

The forum is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of South San Mateo County and the Atherton Civic Interest League. There will be a five-minute ACIL business meeting before the forum begins.

During the forum, each candidate will make an opening statement, then a moderator will ask questions that have been submitted by attendees and consolidated, according to an announcement from the two sponsoring organizations.

The four candidates are incumbent Elizabeth Lewis, Cary Wiest, Denise Kupperman, and Greg Conlon. It is unknown whether all candidates will attend.
