The five candidates for Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District Board of Education are set to participate in a live, in-person forum on Tuesday evening, hosted by the Parent Club Information Council.

With two seats on the Nov. 3 ballot, the candidates are incumbent Trustee Chuck Rogge and challengers Yanira Guzmán, Kandiss Hewing, Asa Strout and Kristie Wang. At least one LVJUSD seat is guaranteed to change hands since Trustee Chris Wenzel is not running.

The forum, scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the LVJUSD board room at 685 E. Jack London Blvd., will be open to the public and held in-person with COVID-19 protocols in place such as a health screening, face mask requirement and social distancing, organizers said.

Climate survey

Pleasanton officials are in the process of updating the city's Climate Action Plan (CAP) from 2012, and they are looking for public input through an online survey on community visions and priorities to include in CAP 2.0.

"The CAP 2.0 will continue to focus on local actions to increase community resiliency, respond to the impacts of climate change, and meet current statewide GHG emission reduction targets established in California," officials said.

The survey, with a deadline of Oct. 16, is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/PleasantonCAP.
