Streetsblog Teams with Climate Resolve to Live Stream Three Candidate Forums

Next week, the global warming activists of Climate Resolve will host a series of candidate forums focusing on the environment, transportation and the economy. Anyone wishing to take part in the discussion, happening from 9 am to 4 pm at the California Endowment Building just north of Union Station, can reserve their space by clicking on the image above.

However, thanks to a special arrangement between Climate Resolve and Streetsblog Los Angeles, we’re happy to announce that we will be broadcasting the first three debates at Streetsblog TV.

While the program officially starts at 8:30 am, our broadcast will begin with the City Attorney discussion at 9:15. Following that will be a discussion with Senator Curran Price and Ana Cubas the two remaining candidates in the Council District 9 race to replace Jan Perry. Rounding out our broadcast schedule will be a third district discussion this time with the candidates to replace Eric Garcetti in CD 13, Mitch O’Farrell and John Choi.

We’re looking for a sponsor to help defray the costs of the broadcast and allow us to broadcast the entire event. If you’re interested, email damien@streetsblog.org. The broadcast of the morning sessions is made possible by a grant from the Vida Feliz Foundation.
