SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Dana Point Chamber of Commerce has planned an educational Candidates Forum on Monday, October 18 at 7:30 a.m. at the Ocean Institute, 24200 Dana Point Harbor Drive.
All five candidates vying for three open spots on the City Council are expected to attend.
The Chamber said in an event press release that because it believes an informed electorate is a central to a viable democracy, it is part of their duty to help keep the business community informed about the candidates and issues affecting our city. To this end, the Chamber has organized this event in hopes of creating a venue where citizens will have an opportunity to hear first-hand the candidates’ stand on local issues and to help cultivate a bond between city leaders and the business community in Dana Point.
The forum is free for Chamber members who have made reservations by Friday, October 15. After the deadline, members will pay $10 at the door. The cost for non-members is $20.
The Coffee Importers will provide a continental breakfast.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the candidates. Call the Chamber at 949.496.1555 to make your reservation.
Remember that the deadline to register to vote in the November 2 general election is October 18.
Log on to the individual candidates’ websites to find out more about each of them and stay tuned to the Dana Point Times for continuing pre-election coverage leading up to the election.
