Murphys, CA — Now that the June Primary ballot has been set, let the political debating begin.  The first, of what could be several, candidate forums has been set in the Mother Lode.

The three candidates in the District 3 Calaveras County Board of Supervisors race will debate the issues in Murphys.  Those candidates are incumbent Merita Callaway, Mike Borean and Mike Oliveira. The term is for four years.

The guidelines for the debate include each candidate making a short opening and closing statement.  A moderator will ask the candidates a series of questions.  In addition, the audience will be able to ask questions.

Murphys Community Club and the Murphys Business Association have organized the forum.  It will be held at the Native Sons of the Golden West Hall at 389 Main Street on Wednesday, April 16 beginning at 7 p.m.
