The Davis Vanguard and Davis Media Access (DMA) will co-host a candidates forum for Davis Joint Unified School Board at Harper Junior High Multipurpose room on October 1, 2012.The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the forum begins at 7 p.m.
The forum will have a unique set-up in that candidates will be seated facing each other in a discussion format. Each of the five candidates will ask one question to be answered by themselves and the other candidates, and then there will be time at the end for question and answer of the candidates.
In advance of the event the Vanguard sent out written questions to the candidates, which will be published on its website (davisvanguard.org) early next week.
Davis Patch will live blog the event for those who can't attend. We'll also attempt to set up a live feed so you can watch from home. More on that later.
"We say this every year, and perhaps it is the truth, but this is a crucial election for education in Davis - not only do we have five candidates with a broad range of ideas on how to improve our education system in the wake of consistent and persistent budget crises, but we also have a parcel tax measure on the ballot which means the voters will decide how much in the way of resources the members get to work with," said David Greenwald, Executive Director of The Davis Vanguard.
