‘Dine With Candidates’ on Sept. 24

The Democratic Club of the High Desert will host “Dine With Your Candidates” on Monday, Sept. 24, from 5-6 p.m. at the Homestead Family Restaurant.

Ridgecrest mayoral and council candidates will be invited to meet informally with members of the public. Attendees will be encouraged to sit at booths of six. Candidates will have five minutes to address each table.

Following the last speaker, each candidate will sit at each table and field questions from the diners for 12 minutes.

A buffet dinner will be available for purchase.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the public to meet the candidates face to face,” said Matthew Alexander.

“Because of the arranged informality, this venue works well especially for those who may feel shy about speaking in a large group,” he added.

For reservations or more information, call Alexander at 760-382-3878.
