San Marcos Students Holding School Board Candidates Forum

This Thursday, the San Marcos High School Associated Student Body and Leadership class will host a Santa Barbara Unified School District School Board Candidates Forum.

The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. and last until about 8:30 p.m. on the Antigone Stage in the San Marcos High School auditorium.

This will be an entirely student run and organized event. Students will write and ask questions and moderate the session in order for high school students and the community to hear the positions and ideas of the four candidates.

The event is open to all residents of the school district, and all are encouraged to attend. By hosting this event, the San Marcos High School Associated Student Body and Leadership class can participate in the election process and educate themselves and others about the various issues affecting the SBUSD.

The four candidates for the SBUSD School Board are Ed Heron (incumbent), Lou Segal, Gayle Eidelson and Pedro Paz.

The entire community is also welcome to attend the San Marcos Gourmet Food Truck Festival before the forum. The festival occurs every second and fourth Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. on the corner of Hollister and Turnpike. It features seven gourmet food trucks with dinner and dessert selections.

San Marcos High School is located at 4750 Hollister Ave. in Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
