The Pleasanton PTA Council and the League of Women Voters of Livermore-Amador Valley are co-sponsoring a School Board Candidates Forum, Monday, October 6, beginning at 7:00 p.m., in the PUSD board room located at 4665 Bernal Avenue, Pleasanton.

All 4 candidates—Jeff Bowser, Joan Laursen, Mark Miller, and Paige Wright—have accepted an invitation to participate. There are two open trustee seats for the PUSD School Board in the November election.

“One of the PTA’s most important objectives is to educate our members and the public on issues that affect children,” says Pleasanton PTA Council President Katie Brunner, “to that end, the Pleasanton PTA Council is hosting this forum to allow community members to learn more about each PUSD School Board candidate’s knowledge of issues affecting our students’ education. As a nonpartisan and nonsectarian organization, we do not support or oppose any of the candidates but rather encourage the public to learn about the candidates and the issues, and to cast an informed vote.”

The forum is open to the public and will be recorded. The schedule of telecasts and/or webcasts will be announced at the event.

The moderator, provided by the League of Women Voters, will give each candidate an opportunity to briefly address the audience, and then they each will be asked a series of questions. Members of the audience will then have an opportunity to ask additional questions.
