Don’t forget — you won’t want to miss our school board candidates forum on Thursday. Come see the candidates vying to steer San Diego Unified explain what they stand for and why.

This is a rare joint forum for candidates running from areas B (which includes Tierrasanta, Scripps Ranch and part of City Heights) and C (which includes La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Point Loma and downtown.) We’re bringing the incumbents and their challengers together — all six of them — to ask them the best questions that we and our readers could think up. Here are the deets:

Thursday, May 20th

7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Liberty Station, Corner of Dewey Rd. & Historic Decatur Rd., Bldg. 202, Suite 205 (Click here for directions.)

I’ll be moderating with an iron fist. You’ll get to hear their thoughts, question them on tough issues and mingle with them afterwards. The event and parking are free.

Although advance registration is not required, if you do plan to attend, sending a quick email to will help ensure we have plenty of chairs.

These candidates being put to the test in the June primary, when voters in areas B and C will choose which two candidates will advance to the fall election. But even if you don’t live in those areas, you need to know all about them before November. So why not start now?

We’re also seeking folks to tweet the event. If you’re up to the task, please use the hashtag #vosdforum so we can track your thoughts and maybe even ask your questions in real time! Hope to see you there!
