Last week, Westlake Revelations and Oak Forest hosted a debate of the Westlake Village City Council Candidates. With 120 in attendance, including the many standing in the back of the room, this appears to be one of the best attended candidate forums ever in Westlake Village.
All four candidates attended (listed here by ballot order):
Ned Davis, Executive
Philippa Klessig, Mayor Pro Tem (incumbent)
Carol Kirschbaum, Retired Risk Manager
Theodore Corwin, Physician
The debate lasted approximately 90 minutes. Each candidate had a 4 minute opening statement, and a 2 minute closing statement. There were 12 questions on a wide variety of topics, and each candidate answered each of the questions so that attendees could compare each of their answers.
Questions were aggregated by Westlake Revelations from questions received from the community. Those questions asked the most were asked at the debate. The event was moderated by Neil Ticktin, Founder of Westlake Revelations.
A video of the full event, from start to finish, is now available on the web at:
Westlake Revelations also has created an “Election Central” page with the most up to date information about the candidates for all the races, measures, voter registration, absentee ballots and more.
