The Student Government at College of the Canyons is inviting all students and community members to a public candidate forum for the four candidates seeking election to the Santa Clarita Community College District Board of Trustees in November.
The ASG-sponsored candidate forum will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, in the College of the Canyons Board Room, located in Hasley Hall, Room 137 on the Valencia campus.
This event is open to the public and offers a chance for local voters to ask questions and make their voices heard in front of the pool of candidates who will be serving as the district’s future elected officials.
