Fifth district Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske will host a Candidate Forum for residents on Monday, May 19, 7 pm at the El Dorado Community Center – Bridge Room. Candidates for Mayor, City Attorney, and Fifth District Council have been invited. A panel of Neighborhood Association leaders will ask the candidates questions, and residents in attendance will also have an opportunity to pose their questions.

“This is an informational event that offers residents an opportunity to learn more about the candidates, what they stand for, their goals if elected, and how they would solve issues important to residents,” explained Schipske.

Invited mayoral candidates are Damon Dunn and Robert Garcia; City Attorney candidates, James Johnson and Charles Parkin, and 5th District Council candidates Carl Kemp and Stacy Mungo. At press time, Damon Dunn, Charles Parkin, and Carl Kemp had confirmed their attendance.

Panelists representing Fifth District neighborhoods include: Ron Beeler (Carson Park), Carol Shaw (South of Conant), Doug Kramer (Ranchos), Gary Field (Lakewood Village), Heather Burke (El Dorado Park Estates), and a still to be named representative for El Dorado Park South.

No campaign materials will be allowed to be distributed before, during, or after the event because it is on public property. For more information about the forum, call the Office of Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske, 562-570-6932 or
