Tonight’s the night — the first of two consecutive Thursday night “Use Your Voice” Forums sponsored by BenitoLink and San Benito County Farm Bureau is this evening, beginning at 6:30 p.m.. It will be held at the Hollister City Hall Council Chambers at 375 Fifth St.
Be there or watch it live. For those who cannot attend, the Forum will also be streamed LIVE online on BenitoLink.com with the help of media partner, CMAP-TV. It can also be viewed on CMAP-TV Channel 17.
Candidates for Congress, Assembly, the San Benito County Health Care District Board, and Gavilan Community College Board of Trustees will answer several questions posed by the moderators.
The Forum is scheduled to run for about an hour and a half. Questions have been sent in by members of the community and selected by an editorial team. This is an open forum being held to help residents better understand county issues and hear first-hand from the candidates running for office.
No candidates will receive the questions prior to the event and neither BenitoLink nor the Farm Bureau will endorse candidates.
The following candidates are scheduled to attend and answer questions:
Congress, District 20
Assembly, District 30
San Benito Health Care Board
Gavilan College Trustees
