Live Chat with The Incumbents

On August 12th, I spoke live with the Candidates for Simi Valley City Council who are challenging the incumbents. Next week on Tuesday, August 31st at 7:00pm, I will be chatting LIVE with Candidates and incumbents Michelle Foster and Glen Becerra.

If you listened to our last live streaming chat then you already have a good feel for how the challenging Candidates feel about some of Simi Valley’s most high profile issues. This time, hear from Council Members Foster and Becerra on the same topics and possibly more (as time permits).

What a great evening with the challenging City Council Candidates. Each candidate had plenty to share on topics such as doing business in Simi Valley, the Shop Simi Valley First program, City Council salary and benefits and more. I’m pleased to present the recorded playback of our live chat.

For more information about the candidates, see the following links:

In our 90 minutes of time, we did NOT cover all the topics I was hoping to touch on. Hopefully these candidates will return to cover some additional topics before the election.

My sincere thanks to the participants and for those of you who listened in. More to come, I hope!

Tonight is our Live Candidate Forum!

Join us this evening for the LIVE candidate forum at VoteSimiValley.com. We’re going live tonight at 7:00PM! Tonight’s focus is on the Challengers for City Council (Council Members only, no mayoral candidates). Joining us this evening:

  • Ken Sandberg
  • Mike Judge
  • Mitch Green
  • Keith Mashburn

This will not be a debate format. Instead, we will be covering various issues and each candidate will be given the opportunity to discuss their positions. This chat is unscripted and will be streamed live!

This is your opportunity as a voter to get a real sense of who these candidates are and hear them explain their position on the issues in their own words. Join us LIVE at 7:00pm!

HOW TO LISTEN TO THE BROADCAST: To listen in, simply browse to the VoteSimiValley.com website and click the link at the top of the page that says VSV Live!

LIVE With the Candidates

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.
