A public Congressional District 1 Candidate Forum will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017 at the Quincy Branch of the Plumas County Library, 445 Jackson St., from 5:00-6:30 PM. The purpose of the event is to introduce candidates running for the US House of Representatives in the June 5, 2018 Primary Election.
After the candidates’ opening statements, the audience will be given the opportunity to ask questions submitted in writing on the night of the event.
The candidates attending this forum are as follows:
Dennis Duncan, from Butte County, has been a social worker most of his adult life, working primarily with families. He is running on a platform of honesty and ethics to bring those qualities to Washington D.C.
Jessica Holcombe, from Placer County, is a business attorney and advocate for civil rights, improving the lives of working families and the rights of immigrants. She is ready to go to battle for these rights in Congress.
Marty Walters, from Plumas County, is an environmental scientist and financial analyst. She is running on a platform of building new rural economies, developing a roadmap toward single payer healthcare, and managing our forests and watersheds for fire resilience and sustainable water, timber and recreational use.
The evening will end with the opportunity for the audience to speak with the candidates informally during light refreshments.
This event is sponsored by Indian Valley Indivisibles, Plumas County Democrats and Plumas Action Network.
