Upcoming Youth Candidates’ Forum to Address Topic ‘Healthy Communities’

The Coalition of Youth Advocates and Future Leaders of America will join the Santa Barbara Youth Council in hosting a Youth Candidates’ Forum featuring candidates for the Santa Barbara City Council.

The central topic for this youth forum is “healthy communities.”

“We are very excited to see what the candidates have to say about issues that affect youth and young adults,” said Santa Barbara Youth Council member Cindy Diaz.

In keeping with the chosen theme for the youth forum, many of the questions will be related to improving the quality of life for all residents, with specific attention to how this relates to youth in the Santa Barbara community.

Questions for candidates to address will focus on local issues and will be developed with the participation of members of local student government and local youth service programs.

The candidates’ forum will be held at the Louise Lowry Davis Community Center, located at 1232 De La Vina Street, beginning at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5, 2015.

There will be a meet and greet with the candidates beginning at 5:30 p.m, where light refreshments will be served.

All members of the public are invited to attend this special event free of charge.

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!
