Council Candidates to Answer a Myriad of Questions During Forum

Mayoral Candidates Darlene Gee, Latika Malkani and Inga Miller

    The Orinda Association is hosting a virtual forum Thursday, Oct. 8, from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. for three candidates vying for two places on the City Council board. Incumbents Darlene Gee and Inga Miller and challenger Latika Malkani will be given equal opportunities to respond to questions submitted by the public during a question and answer session moderated by the League of Women Voters. Incumbent Moraga-Orinda Fire District 5 Board Member Craig Jorgens, running unopposed, will speak after the forum about fire prevention, fuel reduction and the Firewise program.
    The forum will broadcast in real time via Zoom and recorded to view at a later date on Contra Costa Television (CCTV), Channel 26. Questions for the candidates can be emailed to: Deadline is no later than noon, Monday, Oct. 5, to make sure the moderator receives them in time to be included Thursday evening. Questions will be presented anonymously to the candidates, and no questions will be accepted during the broadcast. Organizer Cindy Powell said there should be time for about 12 questions to be presented to the candidates.
    Not being allowed to gather, all participants will join the forum from their homes. Steve Harwood is handling the technical side of the Zoom broadcast, which may be accessed at
