First Candidates Forum a Positive Event

September 10, 2018

The first public forum to host candidates for school board (as well as other offices) was held tonight (Monday, September 10, 2018) at St. Stephen CME Church on Union Avenue.

The majority of the time was given to candidates for city council and mayor positions in Fairfield, Suisun and Vacaville. Each speaker had three minutes to tell about themselves and address a specified issue. Afterwards a “meet and greet” time was held afterwards in the adjacent room, with light refreshments.

The evening was hosted and sponsored by five different organizations. Here is the list, per the printed program:

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc, Tau Upsilon Omega Chapter, Ms. Lavona Hamilton, President;

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Solano Valley Alumnae Chapter, Ms. Sarah Chapman, President;

National Council of Negro Women, Fairfield-Suisun City-Vacaville Section, Ms. Jacquie Bruessard, President;

St. Stephen Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, Rev. Dr. David C. Isom, Senior Pastor, Mrs. Annette J. Williams, Lay Leader;

Other individuals officiating named on the program consisted of Mrs. Clarice Roberts, Mrs. Opal McCoy, Mrs. Doris Jones, Ms. Vanita Finney, and Mr. Kenneth Lewis, Sr.

A big thank you to all the sponsoring organizations and individuals who provided service and refreshments.
