As the June 7 City of Beverly Hills General Municipal Election approaches, various community groups in Beverly Hills are hosting public events in which local candidates running for City Council and City Treasurer will participate in a Q&A style forum. Eleven candidates are vying for three open City Council seats and three candidates for the position of City Treasurer. The goal of the events is to inform voters about the candidates in a transparent and impartial setting. All of the sessions will be periodically rebroadcast on BHTV 10 leading up to Election Day and are available to the public on-demand anytime at beverlyhills.org/elections.

“The Southwest Homeowners have held a Candidate Forum for more than 30 years during each municipal election,” Southwest Beverly Hills Homeowners Association board member Kenneth Goldman told the Courier. “We try to ask good questions and to be fair to all candidates. Toward the end of the Forum we will take questions from the audience. It’s always been really well received and, I think, helpful to the voters to know where each candidate stands. We try to get very specific responses from the candidates.”
