Rancho Santa Margarita City Council Candidates Forum

Can’t get enough of local city council campaigns? ¬†Courtesy of Cox Communications and the South Orange County Economic Coalition, below is a televised forum among some of the candidates for City Council of Rancho Santa Margarita. ¬†Apparently, three of the candidates declined to participate.

According to Cox, “Cox Communications, in partnership with the South Orange County Economic Coalition, is proud to present the Decision 2014 Candidate Forum Series. The Series is provided as a non-partisan public service. The Candidate Forums are not meant to support or oppose any candidates, and were produced independently of any views of the sponsors. All candidates in each race were invited to participate and given an equal opportunity to present their positions on the issues.”

We thank our friends at The Real RSM for bringing this forum to our attention.
