• Candidates’ forum on water – Sponsored by WaterPlus

    THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2012, 7:00 P.M.



    WaterPlus, a nonprofit ratepayer advocacy organization is sponsoring a Candidates Forum on Water, Thursday, September 13, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. at the Monterey Elks’ Lodge, 150 Mar Vista Drive, Monterey. All twenty candidates in Monterey Peninsula contested elections have been invited and eighteen plan to attend.

    The format will be Q&A. Prior to the forum, each candidate will receive eleven questions. Each will be asked to answer two of the questions; one self-chosen, and one chosen by WaterPlus. Candidates will also have two minutes to give a free statement on water. The local water problem will be the sole topic of the forum.

    Ron Weitzman, President of WaterPlus, states: “This is an opportunity for citizens to hear directly from the candidates on this very important issue. Questions range from asking the candidates, if elected/re-elected, how they would help to resolve the local water problem, to asking their view about Cal Am’s proposal and if they believe that Cal Am’s water supply should include the Pacific Grove Desalination Project. People will also hear details about the cost of water and how their votes at the upcoming election may affect them, their families and their pocketbooks, as well as the outcome of the water crisis.”
