Candidate forum for city council race set

Seven candidates are vying for three open seats for South Lake Tahoe City Council in the November General Election.There will be an opportunity to hear from the candidates at a City Council Candidates Forum presented by the TahoeChamber at Lake Tahoe Golf Course on Sept. 10 from 5 to 7 p.m.

All seven candidates have been invited to participate in the forum. Candidates include incumbents Brooke Laine, Angela Swanson, and Tom Davis, as well as challengers Wendy David, Matt Palacio and Austin Sass. Former City Council member Bruce Grego is also a candidate. Candidate questions will be moderated by representatives of TahoeChamber’s Candidate Endorsement Committee, representing more than 660 members and 8,000 jobs in the community. Many of the questions will revolve around principles in the Tahoe Future 2020 South Shore Community Vision, a platform adopted by the Chamber Board of Directors. Questions will also be solicited from the audience.

The forum is free-of-charge and open to the community.

The Tahoe Regional Young Professionals will host its monthly mixer following the forum, also at Lake Tahoe Golf Course.
