It’s taken a while to coordinate the effort, and some of the specifics are still a bit up in the air, but it looks like we have a group of eager City Council Candidates who are ready to discuss the issues LIVE on a streaming audio feed right here on VoteSimiValley.com. We’ve got a date of Thursday, August 12th, 7:00pm for this event.
For me, this is a huge deal! Simi Valley voters don’t get equal exposure to challenging candidates as they do to incumbents like Becerra and Foster. Both incumbents have a standing history as Council Members, each with their own network of friends and associates who can help spread the word, participate in fundraisers, and assist with distributing signs and literature. Challengers are by no means helpless, but don’t always have similar networks. My hope is this will serve as a helpful platform with which they can spread the word about their candidacies.
