Angelique Ashby (L) and Dave Jones (R), candidates for the District 8 seat for State Senate, speak during the Candidates’ Forum held on October 9th at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento.
On October 9, NCJW and two other faith-based non-profits hosted a hybrid event with candidates for both local and statewide elections. Sacramento Area Congregations Together (SacACT) and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) collaborated with us to help voters reach a decision in three races. Eric Guerra and Stephanie Nguyen are running for the District 10 State Assembly seat. Jaclyn Moreno and Pat Hume (invited, but not in attendance) are vying for the District 5 seat on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors. Dave Jones and Angelique Ashby are competing for the District 8 seat for State Senate.
Approximately 40 people attended the event in-person and over 250 people watched the Livestream broadcast on SacACT’s YouTube channel.
NCJW is grateful to both JCRC and SacACT for partnering with us to produce a successful event to help citizens make decisions about local candidates in the upcoming election.
