A candidates forum, for those running for the Ojai Unified School District Board, will be held Oct. 22 at the Ojai Unified School District’s Board office at 414 E. Ojai Ave. The Ojai Valley News and the Ojai Valley Visitors Guide will host the event.
The four candidates, Thayne Whipple, Linda Taylor, Kevin Ruf and Bill Ansell, will each have two and a half minutes for opening remarks followed by a question-and-answer period.
The candidates will each be asked six questions. Three questions will be specific to each candidate and three will be the same for all candidates. The candidates will have two one-minute opportunities during this portion to rebut or expand on a challenger’s answer.
Following this, the candidates will have two and half minutes each for closing remarks.
The public is encouraged to attend the forum, which starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. and should last until approximately 8 p.m.
Ojai Valley News Publisher Tim Dewar is accepting questions from the public at firstname.lastname@example.org.
