Candidate Forums for Torrance city office; stop crime in the Riviera

Full house at City Council Candidates forum

A lively and informative question and answer forum was held April 2 at South High School, featuring 15 out of the 16 candidates running for the 4 open City Council positions.

South High Candidates Forum

The RHA hosted the session, with Linda Herman of the League for Women Voters conducting the Q&A.  The Southwood HOA was a co-sponsor.  All candidates had a chance to answer questions prepared ahead of time, and also fielded questions from the audience.  A short wrapup comment was also allowed.  The range of questions allowed everyone in the audience to get a good sense for where each candidate stood, on issues important to the Riviera and the city as a whole.  Thanks to all the residents who turned out for this important event.
