Tonight the Martinez Chamber of Commerce is hosting a City Council Candiate Forum at the Alhambra High Performing Arts Center, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The forum will be moderated by Jim Caroompas, editor of Martinez Patch, and the event will be streamed live on Martinez Patch.
The candidates—incumbent Mark Ross, Anamarie Farias, Dylan Radke, Mike Alford, and Arsenio Escudero—will answer a series of questions prepared by Lisa Vorderbrueggen of the Contra Costa Times and Caroompas, as well as selected questions submitted by the audience. There are two seats open on the council.
The city treasurer is also a race this year, with incumbent Carolyn Robinson facing challenger Charles Martin.
