Chamber to host Free City Debates - RSVP Required

In an effort to help you get to know the candidates the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce will host a series of candidate forums the last two weeks in August.  A schedule is provided in the table nearby.  It all gets started with a showdown between the two candidates to be City Attorney.  This program is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters and will be held at the Waterfront Hotel in Jack London Square.  Like all the events it will start at 6:30 pm (doors open at 6) and is free to the public. 
The debates for city council seats are hosted exclusively by the Chamber and will be held in locations in the districts.  While the events are free they will fill up fast.  To guarantee your spot contact Paul Junge or Amanda Medina at the Chamber or or by phone 874 – 4800.
