Radio Bilingüe Hosts Town Hall in Sanger on Pressing Issues in the Valadao vs. Cox Race to Represent CD 21 in the US Congress
Radio Bilingüe is inviting the public to a town hall in Sanger with residents of Congressional District 21, where Republican incumbent Rep. David Valadao is being challenged by Democrat TJ Cox. This district, which includes areas of Fresno County, Kings County, Tulare County and Kern County, is one of the poorest in the nation, is majority Latino and a major battleground in the fight for the US Congress.
The community forum will be be held on:
Monday, October 15th
6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Sanger Woman’s Clubhouse
1602 7th Street (at P Street)
The public dialogue will focus on issues of the highest interest to communities of CD 21. Local residents will share testimonies and questions on issues they face when accessing health care, or financial aid for higher education, or the problems of air and water quality, or the challenges faced by immigrants and workers.
Both candidates in CD 21′s race, incumbent Rep. David Valadao and Democratic challenger TJ Cox, have been invited to attend. We have confirmed participation from Mr. Cox. Rep. Valadao has declined the invitation.
Sponsored by Radio Bilingüe, the town hall will be produced and moderated in collaboration with KQED Central Valley Bureau, and will include questions from selected community panelists and members from the live audience.
This special program is part of the series “Hacia el Voto 2018,” an election and civic-participation news coverage that’s a decades-long tradition on Radio Bilingüe. The program will be aired tape-delay the following day, Tuesday October 16 at 4 PM PDT on Radio Bilingüe’s three full-power stations in the San Joaquin Valley – 91.5 FM KSJV Fresno, KMPO 88.7 FM Modesto-Stockton and KTQX 90.1 FM Bakersfield – as well as dozens stations affiliated to the Latino public radio network around the country.
