The Peace and Freedom Party‘s Los Angeles County Central Committee is pleased to invite you to attend a candidate forum Friday August 3, from 6:30-8:30 pm. This is the final forum before Saturday’s Convention vote, and an opportunity for all five candidates to present their views, programs, ideas and reasons for seeking the Peace and Freedom Party Presidential nomination.
Journalist and author James Tripp will moderate. Each candidate will have an opportunity to make a brief opening statement about themselves, their reasons for running and their campaign. The forum will cover topics ranging from foreign policy, economic recovery and job creation, healthcare, and education, selected from the Peace and Freedom Presidential Candidate Questionnaire. Then candidates will be able to respond to questions from the audience. Finally, all candidates will make a brief closing statement.
A reception with socializing and light refreshments will follow. Each campaign will be provided with a campaign table in the reception area for literature and volunteers.
