A coalition of Neighborhood Councils will present a candidate forum on Sunday, February 16, at 4pm. in advance of the upcoming March 3 primary election for Los Angeles City Council District 4. The forum will feature all the candidates in a forum moderated by KPCC Senior Politics Reporter Libby Denkmann. The candidates Sarah Kate Levy, Nithya Ramen, and David Ryu have all agreed to participate; additional candidates who have qualified for the ballot may also be included, according to forum organizers.
The forum will take place at John Marshall High School, which has agreed to serve as host, and students are expected to participate. Members of the public are invited to submit candidate questions here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1_1uof5wHSBdFaOkOxJFeEhX4wxdinXWqKWtyF_Sa6JI/edit
A small committee of Neighborhood Council board members from the Greater Wilshire, Los Feliz, Hollywood United, Bel Air – Beverly Crest, Central Hollywood, Greater Toluca Lake, and Hollywood Hills West Neighborhood Councils have organized the forum, along with the League of Women Voters Los Angeles, which has been advising and will provide on-site support.
Members of the organizing committee have committed to not endorsing or donating to any candidate. The committee members are developing questions covering a broad range of topics, and are reaching out to residents in their respective neighborhood councils to publicize the forum.
The event will be free and open to the public.
Arrangements are being made to live-stream the forum via the LFNC Facebook page (facebook.com/losfeliznc) and possibly other outlets.
