WHO: 55th Assembly District candidates

WHAT: Candidates forum

WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 15, 7:30-9:30 a.m.; doors open at 7

WHERE: Claudia Hampton Lecture Hall, California State University, Dominguez Hills

Voters in the 55th Assembly District will get their first chance to hear from all six candidates seeking the seat in the state legislature during a candidates forum the morning of Nov. 15. The event is being hosted by California State University, Dominguez Hills and the Carson Chamber of Commerce.

The 55th Assembly District seat became vacant in August when then-representative Laura Richardson won her bid to represent the 37th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. A special primary election is scheduled for Dec. 11. A general election will take place Feb. 5, 2008.

Vying to represent the cities of Carson, Torrance, Harbor City, Wilmington, Long Beach, Lakewood and Signal Hill in the state Assembly are Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustee Warren Furutani, management consultant Mervin Leon Evans, Carson City Councilman Mike Gipson, Long Beach businesswoman Evelyn D. Robertson, retired aerospace engineer Herb Peters, and Long Beach resident and nurse Charlotte Sadiyah Gibson.

During the forum, the candidates will field questions from members of the audience, who as they arrive will be handed comment cards on which to submit their questions. A continental breakfast will be served at the forum and parking will be free in Lot 3.

The Claudia Hampton Lecture Hall is on the ground floor of Welch Hall, which is located on the campus of CSU Dominguez Hills at Toro Center/Tamcliff Drive and Victoria Street. Parking Lot 3 is adjacent to Welch Hall.
