Join us for a City Council Candidates Forum on September 21 from 6:00-8:30 PM at The Beach Retreat Conference Center located at 3411 Lake Tahoe Boulevard to hear from the eleven candidates running for City Council. All eleven candidates will be participating in the forum. The meeting is open to the public and will be live streamed on Zoom. 

 

To attend online, please register at bit.ly/CouncilCandidatesForum to receive the direct Zoom meeting link. No registration is required to attend in person.

 

Tomorrow’s forum will allow the candidates to provide an opening statement as to why he or she is running, and if elected, the key issues they intend to address. The candidates will then be asked to respond to a series of questions from a panel of community members. Questions from the in-person audience will be accepted on cards and asked by the panel. 

 

Some of the candidates have shared information in advance about their background, why they are running, and where to learn more about them:

Transparency builds trust. Results matter. Together, through an honest and constructive conversation, we can identify the areas of necessary development, protection, and improved quality of life, while ushering SLT into the future. Progress is accomplishable without compromising who we are.

I came to Tahoe following my love of the mountains. I seek the office of city council to advocate for local needs – housing, roads, and fire protection. To prioritize locals in our local government, our bartenders and servers, nurses and retirees. These are the people who make Tahoe a home.
