BENICIA – The city’s Open Government Commission is hosting a candidates’ forum at 10 a.m. on Saturday, providing an opportunity for candidates to address any last minute attacks, officials said.
All Benicia City Council and mayoral candidates have been invited to attend the forum, which will be broadcasted live on Zoom and on local government Channel 27.
“At the forum, voters will have an opportunity to hear candidates discuss any ‘hit pieces’ distributed before the election,” according to a city of Benicia press release.
It can be cancelled by unanimous decision of the candidates.
Benicia Vice mayor Christina Strawbridge, councilman Steve Young, and small business owner Jason Diavatis are all running for mayor. Incumbent Tom Campbell, businessman Terry Scott, and environmental planner Trevor Macensk are all vying for one of the two open council seats.
Questions about ‘hit pieces’ can be sent to Benicia City Attorney Benjamin Stock at firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on Thursday.
