Candidate forums heat up council race
Former city councilmember Jackie McHenry asks the seven city council candidates to draw numbers for seating at the forum hosted by Active Claremont on Thursday night. The forum, held at the Hughes Center Padua Room, was standing-room-only with well over 100 people in attendance. Candidates fielded questions from the audience on topics ranging from the proposed new police station to potential conflicts of interest. The city council candidate forums will continue with the next event at the Claremont High School Library, Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
