The Candidate Forum for Shasta Lake City Council was canceled just as it was scheduled to begin, October 6th, at about 8:30 p.m.
Candidate Mark called other candidates to advise them he was ill and would not be attending. He did not notify the League of Women Voters. Candidate Farr refused to participate in the forum without Candidate Mark. Candidate Powell felt it was inappropriate to continue the candidate forum with only two candidates and withdrew. The League advised the remaining Candidate Watkins that we would not hold the candidate forum with a single candidate.
The forum was not rescheduled as ballots have been mailed to voters and there is inadequate time to arrange another date pending Candidate Mark's recovery.
