Prior to the forum, each candidate will be asked to answer in writing three questions about their goals for the community and the Town Council, and the responses will be posted on the group’s web site at

Each of the eight census tracts has one representative seat open for election.

This will be the third time Neighbors Building a Better Altadena is working to increase community involvement in the election of Town Council representatives. Its mission statement says,
