City council candidates

In our last issue we listed city council candidates but managed to leave out half of them (no, not fake news). The list on page 2 shows the new council districts that will be voting and the candidates in each district.

These are some candidate forums coming up to learn more about the candidates.

On Oct. 3, the League of Women Voters will host a forum for Districts 4, 5 and 6 at Citrus Glen Elementary at 9655 Darling Road . The forum goes from 7:05-8:45 p.m.

They’ll be preceded by Ventura Unified School Board’s District 3, where three candidates are running. That happens from 6:30-7 p.m.

On Oct. 3, the Westside Community Council will hold a forum for District 1. The candidates will get three waves of questions: from the public, board and then from fellow candidates, said James Forsythe, WCC’s vice chair.

The event will start at 6:30 p.m. at E.P. Foster Elementary.

On Oct. 4, the Ventura Social Services Task Force and Homes for All will put on a forum from 7-9 p.m. at the Temple Beth Torah, at 7620 Foothill Road.

The two groups focus primarily on homelessness and housing. Every candidate has been invited.
