SMP Shareholder, Jaclyn Powell, channeled her inner Lester Holt and Martha Raddatz, and moderated this year’s West Sacramento Candidate’s Forum at The Barn. Powell has moderated the debates in West Sacramento for the last three election years on behalf of the West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce and this year’s forum did not disappoint. The Chamber had all five candidates running for City Council participate, and four of the five candidates running for Washington Unified School Board participate. Unfortunately, there was no time for rebuttal given the high number of participants (and Jaclyn believes that there would have been some discerning rebuttal had it been allowed), but the re-imagined forum served its purpose and allowed for great insight into each candidate’s platform.
The Forum will be repeated on Channel 20 until Election Day. You can also view the videos here.
