candidate forums

Alameda has good neighborhood elementary schools, a pair of candidates for the local school board say. And they said they intend to keep it that way.

Two of the three candidates for Alameda's Board of Education offered their views on Alameda's high school situation, the future of the Measure A parcel tax and more at The Alamedan/Alameda Sun's Saturday morning candidate forum at Maya Lin School. Here's the readout, tweet by tweet.

Special interests beware: Contributing money to candidates for Alameda’s mayor and City Council will not buy you influence, according to candidates who attended a candidate’s forum at the Main Library sponsored by The Alamedan and the Alameda Sun.

The Alamedan/Alameda Sun city candidate forum will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, September 18 in the Regina K. Stafford Room in the Main Library, 1550 Oak Street. And you can check out your school board candidates from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 20 in the multipurpose room at Maya Lin School, 825 Taylor Avenue.
