A number of environmental organizations are working together to host a Mayoral Candidate Forum focused on environmental and related health issues.
Confirmed candidates that will participate (in alphabetical order):
- Long Beach Vice-Mayor Dr. Robert Garcia
- Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal
- Community College Trustee Doug Otto
- Long Beach Councilmember Gerrie Schipske, R.N.P., J.D.
NOTE: Due to the overwhelming interest for participation at tomorrow’s Mayoral Forum at the Aquarium, we’ve set up additional seating in the lobby. If you're on the wait list, please do come down, we will have seating inside the theater or in the lobby for everyone that comes.
This Forum is non-partisan and is not intended to endorse a candidate or declare a winner. It is not a debate but simply an educational forum to make more of our residents aware of the environmental stances of the candidates currently running for Mayor.
The Forum is co-hosted by:
- Sierra Club (primary sponsor)
- Green Long Beach
- LB Coalition for a Safe Environment
- Long Beach Greens
- Long Beach Grows
- Shift Long Beach
- Surfrider Foundation
Parking is available at the City Lot directly across from the Aquarium at a flat rate of $8. For more information, or to join as an environmental host, please contact Gabrielle Weeks.
