WEST HOLLYWOOD CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS OF LOS ANGELES TO HOST WEST HOLLYWOOD CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE FORUM MODERATED BY NBC4 ANCHOR AND REPORTER ROBERT KOVACIK
In anticipation of the upcoming municipal election, the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a candidate forum for West Hollywood City Council candidates. Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles and moderated by Robert Kovacik, Anchor and Reporter for NBC4 Southern California, the forum will take place on Tuesday January 29th, 2019 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at The West Hollywood City Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room located at 625 North San Vicente Boulevard.
The City of West Hollywood’s WeHoTV will broadcast the Forum on its cable and web channels. WeHoTV is available to Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable) customers within the City of West Hollywood on channel 10. AT&T U-verse customers across
Southern California can access WeHoTV on channel 99. The forum will also be available for live streaming and on-demand replay on the City’s website at www.weho.org/wehotv and on WeHoTV’s YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/wehotv.
In the past, candidate forums broadcasted on WeHoTV have affiliated with independent and non-partisan groups such as the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles to ensure that all City Council candidates are treated in a fair and impartial manner. It is also important that the persons formulating or reviewing the questions as well as the moderator be independent and impartial.
The public is encouraged to attend the forum or watch from home. Each candidate will have time for opening and closing statements. After the initial question/answer period, there is a public question period where attendees can ask specific questions. Questions will be solicited via Twitter (#wehoforum) as well as by completing and submitting a card on site.
In the spirit of an impartial forum, the Chamber will be reaching out to a geographically diverse cross-section of resident associations and neighborhood watch groups to solicit questions and/or topics important to the West Hollywood community to ensure that the concerns of residents throughout the City are addressed, as well as the business community.
