Candidate Debates

Echols-Thermond DebateThe Assembly District 15 Forum at Berkeley City College was a terrific success—attracting 275 students and citizens—thanks to our co-sponsors Berkeleyside, Berkeley NAACP, Berkeley Chamber of Commerce, Berkeley PTA Council,  BOCA, , Berkeley AAUW,  and Berkeley City College Civic Engagement Club. Our dynamite Communications and Voter Services Teams—particularly Ruby MacDonald and Barb Singleton—tweeted and posted flyers and more to reach many more voters than we’ve reached in the past.
