Two PCC Board Candidate Forums Scheduled for Altadena Voters
Two candidate forums that will help Altadena’s residents decide who to vote for during the upcoming Pasadena City College Board of Trustees election are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, October 6th and 7th.
Area 2 encompasses East Altadena, East Pasadena and Sierra Madre.
The first Candidate Forum will feature both Area 2 and Area 4 candidates at the Westerbeck Recital Hall in the Center for the Arts on the PCC campus. It is co-sponsored by the PCC Faculty Association and the Pasadena Area League of Women Voters. The forum is from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Julie Kiotas, Faculty Association president, said PCC has faced unprecedented challenges, including recent sanctions by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges and “tumultuous relations between faculty, staff, administrators and the Board.”
“The November election offers the college a chance to begin the renewal process so that PCC can regain its equilibrium, begin to bring together as a team the faculty, staff, administrators and the board, and ensure that it fulfills its obligations to the community and to its students,” Kiotas said.
Parking is available in the Bonnie Avenue parking lot at PCC.
On Wednesday, Neighbors Building a Better Altadena (NBBA) will be hosting the second Candidate Forum in the Barbara J. Peason Community Room of the Altadena Library, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The League of Women Voters will be moderating. Candidates will be responding to questions sent in advance by NBBA members as well as those from the audience.
Area 2 candidates Martin Enriques, James Osterling, and Tom Selinske have confirmed their attendance at both forums.
The election for PCC Board members will be held on November 3rd.
