On October 6th at 12:30 p.m., the Exchange of Culver City along with the Rotary Club of Culver City will host the first of two online candidates’ forums. Candidates for Culver City Council will square off on October 6th at the first of these two online debates. On the following Tuesday – October 13th at 12:30pm – contestants for the Culver City Unified School Board will step into the virtual ring to make their case as to why voters should select them on November 3rd.
“Although we are a non-political non-sectarian service club ,” said current Exchange Club President Jeff Cooper, “these forums are part of a long local Exchange Club tradition of inviting candidates standing for electoral office to share their views with our members and the general public.” Cooper continued, “Despite the challenges posed by the Corona Virus pandemic, we think it’s more important than ever that all of us learn as much as we can about all of our great candidates before we cast our votes on November 3rd.”
Each of these two candidates’ forums will be open for free to the public. Questions to the candidates will be based on input received from throughout the community. Both 90-minute forums will be moderated with the candidates having a set time to provide their responses. Unlike recent live debates, the moderators will strictly enforce the rules and will have a mute button close at hand to keep the debates and debaters on track.
The virtual addresses below provide automatic links to the lunchtime candidates’ forums.

The cost to the public is free. “With so many issues confronting our community especially arising from the pandemic and civil unrest, it has never been more important for voters to get informed,” said Cooper. “We truly hope that everyone will join us on October 6th and 13th for our two candidates’ forums.”
