Election Day is Nov. 4, less than three months away, and the League of Women Voters has announced it will hold candidate forums for Stockton City Council from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on Oct. 1 at City Hall.
I’m not sure if they realize it, or if it even matters, but that happens to be the same day the fate of Stockton’s plan to exit bankruptcy is expected to be determined in federal court in Sacramento.
The contests are as follows:
Area 1: Challenger Rick Grewal vs. incumbent Elbert Holman.
Area 3: Challengers Gene Acevedo vs. Susan Loftus for the seat being vacated by Paul Canepa.
Area 5: Incumbent Dyane Burgos Medina vs. challenger Christiana Fugazi.
