Co-sponsored by Republican Club of Rossmoor and League of Women Voters Diablo Valley
The Republican Club of Rossmoor has announced a Nonpartisan Candidates Forum for Contra Costa County candidates for District Attorney, Sheriff, and County Clerk/Recorder co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Diablo Valley. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 6, from 4 to 7 pm in the Tahoe Room of the Event Center at Rossmoor. The Event Center is located at 1021 Stanley Dollar Drive in Walnut Creek.
Participants include Diana Becton and Mary Knox, for Contra Costa County District Attorney; David Livingston and Benjamin Therriault, for Contra Costa County Sheriff; and Vicki Gordon, Devin Murphy, and Nick Spinner, for Contra Costa County Clerk/Recorder. Kristen Connelly, who is also a candidate for Clerk/Recorder, is unable to attend.
The Leagues of Women Voters of Berkeley/Albany/Emeryville, Oakland, and Diablo Valley will provide moderators for the forum. The League’s purpose is to inform voters with a nonpartisan format, which neither supports nor opposes candidates; and to provide a venue for all candidates to promote issues that they feel are important to their constituents. Attendees will be furnished question cards for all the candidates. Questions will be asked in a format that any candidate for that office will be able to answer. The League never shares questions with candidates in advance. Usually, there are more questions than can be asked in the time available.
