[VIA] – It’s an unscripted opportunity for local business leaders to question the two candidates who are vying to become the Santa Clarita Valley’s next representative in the California Assembly: Democrat Edward Headington and Republican Scott Wilk will be the special guests at the Valley Industry Association’s August luncheon.
“No scripts, no questions off limits,” said VIA CEO/President Kathy Norris. “This is a great opportunity for our business community to get to know both candidates as the November election approaches. It’s an important election for our community and I know we’ll have some great questions for them both to answer.”
Wilk and Headington will each have an opportunity to present comments about their candidacies, and will field questions directly from the floor. Jason Schaff, executive editor of The Signal newspaper, will serve as moderator.
The winner of the Headington-Wilk race in November will replace veteran Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, who is leaving office after this year due to term limits.
The luncheon is scheduled 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, August 21, at the Valencia Country Club, 27330 Tourney Road, Valencia, and reservations are required. Those who reserve by Aug. 10 pay just $35, and reservations made Aug. 11-16 cost $45. Non-members and those reserving after Aug. 16 pay $50 if seats are still available. Reservations can be made by calling the VIA office at (661) 294-8088, or through the VIA website: https://www.via.org/Calendar/EventDetails.aspx?id=202
