Meet four candidates from both major parties who are contending for the 49th Congressional seat vacated by Darrell Issa on Monday, April 30 from 6:30-7:45 p.m. The forum is hosted by the three non-partisan, nonprofit citizen advocacy groups Capo Cares, Advocates for Responsible Treatment and Coalition to Save San Clemente.

This lively tri-city forum will seek to answer questions gathered from real life “kitchen table” concerns which can be addressed by federal legislators. All attendees will be asked to complete a straw poll by selecting their top choice candidate. The four confirmed candidates that will be attending are Republicans Rocky Chavez and Brian Maryott and Democrats Doug Applegate and Mike Levin. In addition to the candidates and hosting organizations, the forum anticipates a packed house in this venue with a capacity for 800 attendees.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. and campaigns will have tables in an adjacent room to hand out literature, and talk to the press and constituents.
