Feb. Meeting: DGR Candidate Forum for Riverside City Council Wards 1, 3, and 5.

Come and hear from the candidates!

Join us this February as the Democrats of Greater Riverside host a Candidate Forum for Riverside’s upcoming city council elections. We will be hosting Democratic candidates from city council Wards One, Three, and Five. We’ll be hearing from each candidate and then each candidate will answer member questions. The following candidates are scheduled to attend:

Ward 1 – Denise Booker, Erin Edwards, Phillip Falcone

Ward 3 – Eugene Brown, Ronaldo Fierro, Stevie Taken

Ward 5 – Gabriela Plascencia

Afterwards, club members will vote on which candidates, if any, to recommend for endorsement. This is your chance to hear from the candidates directly and help determine the party’s nomination! So make sure to renew your dues if you haven’t already in time for the meeting.
