Westside residents will have the chance to pose questions to four democratic candidates running to be Los Angeles' next mayor later this month
City Councilmember Eric Garcetti, City Controller Wendy Greuel, City Councilmember Jan Perry and former technology executive Emanuel Pleitzel will be at the Pacific Palisades Woman's Club, 901 Haverford Ave., from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 27 for the annual meeting of the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC)
The public is invited and questions will be asked from a moderator and the audience.
PPDC spokesman Adam Wolman said they also invite members in good standing to vote to ratify the selection of a slate of PPDC executive board officers for 2013. A nominating committee selects a proposed executive board slate from among the 25 to 30 board members.
In recent years, the PPDC hosted Rep. Henry Waxman, state controller John Chiang and L.A. Times columnist Michael Hiltzik. They also recently had a candidates forum featuring Richard Bloom, Besty Butler and Torie Osborn vying for the clubs endorsement for state assembly.
"The PPDC board of directors will be voting the day of the forum to potentially endorse one of the four candidates who attends," Wolman said. "If no candidate achieves the 60 percent of the vote that's required, the club won't endorse for the primary, but will revisit the issue for the general election."
