The forum will be the candidates' last opportunity to address as a group their plans for governing the city if elected before voters can start casting their ballots by mail on Monday, Oct. 8.
Sponsored by the Pleasanton Weekly, the 90-minute debate will also give the public an opportunity to ask questions about where the candidates stand on vital issues facing the city as well as a chance for candidates to respond and tell voters why they should be elected.
The candidates are City Council members Cheryl Cook-Kallio and Jerry Thorne, who are seeking election to the mayor's post; and Karla Brown, Mike Harris, Erlene DeMarcus and Jerry Pentin, who are seeking election to the City Council, where two seats need to be filled.
Gina Channell-Allen, publisher of the Pleasanton Weekly, and its editor Jeb Bing will serve as moderators for the candidates' forum, which will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. in the City Council chambers at 200 Old Bernal Ave. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
Suggested questions for the candidates can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
