Tonight: Atherton City Council candidate forum

 

Voters will have a chance to hear from Atherton City Council candidates, and contribute to a pool of questions the contestants will field, during a forum set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, at Holbrook-Palmer Park in Atherton.

Candidates will make opening statements, then respond to questions submitted by attendees during the forum, sponsored by the Atherton Civic Interest League (ACIL) and the League of Women Voters.

Three of the four candidates, who are running for three seats in the Nov. 2 election, have said they will attend, with candidate Cary Wiest saying he has a scheduling conflict that may prevent him from participating. In addition to Mr. Wiest, the candidates are incumbents Jerry Carlson and Jim Dobbie, and Bill Widmer.

Each candidate has been asked by the ACIL to submit a 500-word statement and answer several questions prior to the forum. ACIL president Peter Carpenter said the statements and responses are posted online. Click here to visit the site.

The forum will be held in the Pavilion at the park, off Watkins Avenue just east of El Camino Real.
