The San Leandro Community Action Network will be holding a candidates forum this Friday to give residents an opportunity to see the City Council candidates up close and personal, and hear their platforms. The group asked each candidate (there are 10) to fill out a questionnaire before the forum, and the candidates’ answers are now posted on SLCAN’s Web site. Some of the interesting questions asked in the questionnaire include:

  • How will you promote joint collaboration projects between the city and public schools?
  • What are your thoughts and plans about getting a quality business in the old Albertsons site?
  • How would you promote opportunities within San Leandro for minorities and other historically disadvantaged populations?
  • Do you think the City Council should ban the use of styrofoam containers and plastic shopping bags in San Leandro? Why or why not?
  • What would you do to decrease crime in San Leandro?
  • [You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.]
