The following political forum videos have been produced to help our community prepare for the upcoming Statewide Primary Election on June 5.

These short videos were recorded at the BenitoLink-Farm Bureau "Your Vote-Su Voto" Forum held at the Hollister City Council Chambers on May 3. Our apologies to those who could not attend, the numbers were unprecedented and we appreciate the growing community interest that was shown. 

These videos were made possible due to financial support from the Farm Bureau, BenitoLink, Benito Valley Farms, SBC Eyecare and the Community Foundation for San Benito County.
