The League of Women Voters is sponsoring a candidates forum 6 p.m. Sept. 20 at the El Dorado County Library in Placerville.
From 6 to 7:15 p.m. Brian Veerkamp and Richard Barb will discuss their platforms and why each feels qualified to represent District 3 on the Board of Supervisors.
From 7:30 to 8:45 p.m., Joe Hoffman and appointed Judge Kurt Stracener will tell us why they deserve election as Superior Court Judge.
The audience will be able to submit questions, and each candidate will be given equal time to respond.
This event is sponsored jointly by the EDC Library programs: “California Reads: Searching for Democracy,” and the local chapter of the League of Women Voters.
The LWV is a strictly non-partisan organization and neither supports, nor opposes, any candidates at any level of government. The LWV’s function is to promote participatory democracy by providing to the public non-partisan information on local, state and national elections.
