October 22, 2012 (San Diego’s East County) – Want to learn more about  candidates running for the Grossmont Union High School District (GUHSD) board?  

The public is invited to a GUHSD candidates forum on Monday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m. in La Mesa.  The League of Women Voters will moderate the forum, which is sponsored by East County Magazine. Audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions in writing and hear candidates’ views in this important race. 

Candidates running are incumbents Priscilla Schreiber and Gary Woods, as well as challengers Zach Miller, Barbara Stevens, Jim Stieringer, and Bill Weaver.  Schreiber, Miller, Stevens, Stieringer and Weaver have confirmed; Woods has not yet responded.

With a Grand Jury investigation into the board majority's use of bond monies, among other controversies, this race is shaping up to be among the most contentious in East County.   

The forum is free and open to the public.  It will be held in the Grossmont Healthcare District conference center (next to the William Herrick healthcare library) at 9001 Wakarusa Street, La Mesa, CA 91942.
