Save the Date: Livable Streets Candidates Forum in CD4

The race to replace Los Angeles City Councilmember Tom LaBonge, who is leaving office after 12 years in office because of term limits, is a crowded race. Over a dozen candidates are vying to replace the colorful LaBonge who has been something of a staple here at Streetsblog.

Everyone who’s coming to the CD4 Candidates Forum, raise your hand!

On Thursday, February 5 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Streetsblog Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Los Angeles Walks will host a forum for candidates to discuss their Livable Streets bonafides. The event is hosted by Hollywood United Methodist Church at 6817 Franklin Avenue in Hollywood.

Anyone who can’t make the forum can follow it at our Live Stream account, Streetsblog TV. We’ll be broadcasting the forum live and archiving the video.

So far, four candidates have responded to our invitation: Carolyn Ramsey, Fred Mariscal, Tara Bannister and Tomas O’Grady. The exact format will depend on how many candidates accept the invitation, but you can expect every candidate to be asked about local issues, such as the redesign of the Glendale-Hyperion Bridge, and city-wide issues, such as transit and parking management.

The event is free and open to the public. Stay tuned for more details and RSVP information.
