Tonight: Assembly candidates forum

 

Democratic candidates for the state's 21st Assembly District seat will debate and answer questions from the audience at a candidate forum Wednesday, Feb. 24, sponsored by several area Democratic clubs.

The event will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Center, 1455 Madison Ave. in Redwood City. It's free, though people are encouraged to reserve a ticket online by clicking here.

The district encompasses The Almanac's circulation area, including Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside.

Three candidates are running in the Democratic primary election, set for June 8. They are competing to replace termed-out Assembly member Ira Ruskin.

The candidates are Rich Gordon, Yoriko Kishimoto and Josh Becker. The organizations sponsoring the forum are the Redwood City Woodside Democratic Club, the Menlo-Atherton Democrats, the Peninsula Democratic Coalition, and San Mateo County Democrats for America.
