Three candidates hoping to represent Tracy and Mountain House on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors will describe their platforms and answer questions at a Monday, April 23, forum.
Councilman Bob Elliott, Rhodesia Ransom and Tom Benigno, who are running to fill the seat of termed-out Supervisor Leroy Ornellas, will all attend.
The free-to-the-public event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Kimball High School theater, 3200 Jaguar Run, just off Lammers Road south of 11th Street.
Tracy Press Editor Jon Mendelson will moderate the event and ask questions, including those submitted by the public via index cards at the event or by email in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No signs or campaign materials will be allowed inside the theater. Light refreshments will be served.
Council hopeful kicks off campaign
Nancy Young will get her 2012 Tracy City Council campaign started with an event Thursday, April 26, in the City Hall lobby.
This will be Young’s second campaign for a seat on the council. She finished fourth out of nine candidates in the 2010 election, with Bob Elliott and Robert Rickman winning the chairs.
This year’s election will also have two positions open, as the terms of councilmen Mike Maciel and Steve Abercrombie are set to expire.
Maciel has announced he will defend his seat, and former councilman and restaurant owner Ray Morelos has also said he will campaign.
Young’s event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at 333 Civic Center Plaza.
