An upcoming reception hosted by the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce, San Benito County Business Council and Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Central Coast will offer the business community an opportunity to engage candidates for local offices in the November mid-term elections.

The event will run 3:30 p.m to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18 at La Catrina Mexican Grill, 449 San Benito Street in Downtown Hollister. Refreshments are sponsored by JRG Attorneys at Law.

The Chambers and Business Council do not endorse candidates, but encourage members and the business community at-large to be informed and engage individually on local issues and opportunities.

Vote NO on Measure X. This was written by the same people who ripped Hollister off for tons of money 14 years ago and want to do it again. We gained nothing from their previous scam and want to send the message that we are no longer their suckers.
