As has been the case for more than three decades, the Yuba-Sutter Chamber of Commerce is staging two local political forums this month, featuring candidates from Yuba and Sutter Counties.
The first forum evening is Wednesday, January 22 at Boyd Hall, 1895 Lassen Blvd in Yuba City beginning at 6:00 p.m., featuring candidates for Sutter County Supervisor in Districts 1, 4 and 5. All eight candidates will appear at the same time during the two-hour forum. This will be the only race featured on this night.
The second evening of forums will be January 29, beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Yuba County Government Center board room, at 915 Eighth Street in Marysville. The first of three segments will be at 6:00, featuring the two candidates for Yuba Water Agency-North division, followed at 6:45 p.m. by the two candidates for Superior Court Judge. Lastly, at 7:30 p.m., the seven candidates for Yuba County Supervisor in Districts 2, 3 and 4 will appear together for up to two hours.
Questions will come from the Chamber Government Affairs Committee members; the moderators; and written questions may be submitted in advance or at the event from the public. Submitted questions must not be personal and must be answerable by all candidates in the race the question is targeted toward.
Each candidate in the various races will give an opening statement, followed by questions posed by the moderators. Candidates will then have a closing statement.
