This Week’s CD1 Debate, One of Three Big Events by LACBC

Just a reminder that Sunday afternoon, the Los Angeles County Bicycle and Occidental College/UEPI Program, LA Walks and Streetsblog Los Angeles will sponsor a forum for the three candidates trying to replace Ed Reyes in Northeast Los Angeles’ Council District 1.

The forum will be moderated by Occidental College Professor Mark Vallianatos and begins at 1:00 p.m. at Oxy’s Herrick Memorial Chapel Lower Herrick Room, 1600 Campus Rd, Los Angeles, 90041. LACBC’s Bike Ambassadors for the region will host a ride leading to the debate that begins at 10:30 at Greayer’s Oak Park,  Marmion Way and Figueroa, across the street from the Bike Oven in Highland Park.

Of course, the CD 1 Forum is also our third broadcast on Streetsblog TV. Join us online at our event page at Live Stream by clicking here or the image on the right. On Monday morning, we’ll have interviews from each of the candidates posted at Streetsblog and the video from the forum posted at the event webpage.
