All Sierra County residents are invited to the non-partisan Candidate Forum we host as a community service. This year we have only one contested local race for County Supervisor for District 2 which covers Sierra City, the Sierra Valley Senior Apartments near Loyalton, Verdi and Long Valley.
One of these two candidates will be deciding issues that will affect all of Sierra County so understanding their positions is important to everyone even if you are not a District 2 voter.
We strive for a forum that is fair to all candidates, without “gotcha” questions and use the non-partisan League of Women Voters format as a guide. The news media of Sierra County is invited to ask questions during the forum as well.
Candidates are encouraged to arrive early and stay late to discuss your questions in a more casual way. Light refreshments will be provided.
Please join us to hear from these two excellent candidates who are stepping up to represent the citizens of District 2 upon the retirement of Supervisor Peter Huebner.
