Forum planned for Paso Robles City Council candidates

The public is invited to hear where the Paso Robles City Council candidates stand on the issues during a forum planned for Tuesday.

Hosted by the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association, the forum is scheduled to take place from 7 to 10 a.m. at F. McLintock’s Saloon, 1234 Park St.

The event will be moderated by Chris Williams, the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District’s new superintendent.

Five candidates are vying for two seats on the council, pitting a pair of incumbents against two newcomers and a planning commissioner. The mayoral race is already decided, with Councilman Steve Martin running unopposed.

In the race for council are current Mayor Duane Picanco and Councilman John Hamon; Steve Gregory, a city planning commissioner; and new faces Jim Reed, a draftsman, and Pam Avila, the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce’s economic development director.

The public can ask questions of the candidates during the forum. Coffee and pastries will be served.

For information, call the Main Street office at 238-4103.
