The first public forum featuring candidates who are running for the two available Laguna Beach city council seats will be held tonight, Tuesday, in the city council chambers.
The candidates are Jane Egly, Verna Rollinger, Robert Ross, Bob Whalen and Steve Dicterow.
Sponsored by Village Laguna, the forum is slated to begin at 7 p.m., but interested members of the public are advised to arrive by 6:45 p.m. Representatives from local Laguna Beach news media outlets will also be on hand to presumably ask tough, probing questions.
The candidate forum will be broadcast live on Cox cable channel 30.
Another candidate forum with a focus on arts-related issues will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 10:30 a.m. until noon at the Laguna Playhouse.
