BenitoLink and the Farm Bureau thanks event sponsors: the Community Foundation for San Benito County, San Benito County Eyecare and Benito Valley Farm Inc. continues to seek local event sponsors.  Sponsor support will allow for broader promotion of the event, video coverage and editing by media partner CMAP-TV and more thorough election coverage. Videos will be published on BenitoLink and CMAP-TV and a social occasion is planned for the final forum. BenitoLink, the Farm Bureau and its sponsors look forward to hosting the Your Vote- Su Voto Primary Election Forum and together we welcome interested parties of all ages, social, political and economic groups.
