PASADENA – ColoradoBoulevard.net:
Eight community organizations come together to host districtwide PUSD candidate forum on September 28.
By News Desk
Community organizations Adelante Youth Alliance, Clergy Community Coalition, Day One, NAACP Pasadena, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition, Pasadenans Organizing for Progress (POP!), and Uniting Parents of Pasadena invite the PUSD community to attend a candidate forum featuring school board candidates for election this November.
This November’s elections feature contests with nine qualified candidates vying for seats in PUSD districts 1, 3, 5, and 7. All seats are contested, with races in districts 1 and 3 containing incumbents, while districts 5 and 7 do not. These districts are holding elections that coincide with the midterm General Election cycle, where turnout is expected to be significantly higher than in 2017, when they were last up for election.
Host organizations represent constituencies affected by a range of education issues that will be discussed during the forum, including street safety for schools, immigrant parents’ rights, special education, inequities, and much more.
The forum will be moderated by Daniel Fong of Day One, with questions asked by community members directly impacted by the issues.
The general election will be on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Mail-in ballots to all registered voters will be sent in mid-October. To register to vote or to check your current voter registration information, visit the LA County’s Registrar of Voters’ webpage.
