Check out your public access television station for our 2010 Election Previews, recorded round-table interviews with nearly 100 candidates in 23 Contra Costa races.

The Times has helped produce, along with the League of Women Voters and Contra Costa TV, the election previews for 18 years, and I moderated during the three-day recording schedule this week. (Click here for my full story on the previews.)

We will also post the 23 segments on www.contracostatimes.com starting next week. The large files require considerable processing time and it will take a few days.

    Read your article on the forums. Would you please list all of the attendees and also the no shows for each race? For many of these races this is the only public forum that we may see them participate in. It is also an indicator of the level of committment if a candidate takes the time to appear and is prepared.

    Lisa:
    But nothing on the Pleasant Hill Park & Rec candidates?
    or did I just not see the interview??
    thanks,
    Terry

  • John W

    Still don’t get why Wilson was a no-show for AD-15. Seems like a pretty dumb move for a guy who should have a great shot at the seat this time.

  • hypocritical yes?

    Interesting on the Pleasant Hill City Council debate
    that incumbent Terri Williamson didn’t know what employees pay on their pensions or worse yet that she said that 3rd place runner ups on the ballot were “losers” and why would anyone appoint a “loser” to a vacancy on a council.
