East San Jose’s ARUSD Candidates Forum 2018
You’re invited! ARUSD Candidates Forum, 9/12/18 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Alum Rock Library
District 5 United and the League of Women Voters of San Jose / Santa Clara invite you to a Candidates Forum for the Alum Rock Union School District (ARUSD) Governing Board. The Candidates Forum will be held on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, from 6:30pm-8:00pm in the Community Room of the Alum Rock Library. Neither District 5 United nor the League of Women Voters endorse candidates.
This event will have a strict format which includes opening statements, questions from the event organizers, questions from the audience or submitted via the linked form, and closing statements. Questions from the audience are submitted on cards, vetted and posed via the event organizers. There probably will not be time to ask all questions and/or not all questions may be included. All candidates will be allowed to answer all questions and will each have one rebuttal opportunity.
Given that the deadlines for candidates to file paperwork are in the future, the candidates are not yet finalized. For this reason, all eight of the following parties were invited to participate:
1. Confirmed candidates for ARUSD Governing Board.
2. Parties currently campaigning for ARUSD Governing Board.
3. ARUSD Trustees whose current term will expire in 2018.
The following parties, in alphabetical order, have confirmed participation:
