Propositions and candidates in the upcoming mid-term election will be vetted and explained at the Community Education Town Hall on Friday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m.
The forum will be held on Lay Witness Night during the AME Church’s Southern California Annual Conference, which runs from Oct. 17, through Oct. 21, at the LAX Hilton Hotel, 5711 W Century Blvd., in Los Angeles. Bishop Clement W. Fugh will preside over the conference and Pastor Dwaine A. Jackson of Bryant Temple AME Church will host the session.
Town hall was coordinated by the Southern California Conference Lay Organization, in response to Fugh’s emphasis on education, said SCCLO president Dorothy Vails Weber.
“The issues and candidates on the Nov 6, ballot can make a difference in the quality of lives in this community, city, county and state. Nothing is needed more than an educated electorate,” said Vails Weber.
“The discussion will highlight candidates for statewide offices and the L.A. County Sheriff, and four ballot initiatives. Also, information tables will provide more details for participants on other other candidates and initiatives.”
