Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alatorre and three candidates challenging his reelection are slated to appear Wednesday at a political forum organized by two Northeast Los Angeles community groups.
The forum will be held from 7:15 to 9 p.m. at Mosher Auditorium in Norris Hall at Occidental College, 1600 Campus Road, Eagle Rock. The event is sponsored by The Eagle Rock Assn. and the Highland Park Neighborhood Assn.
Jay Rounds, president of the Los Angeles Conservancy, will serve as moderator. Members of the audience and association leaders will ask questions of the four men running for the 14th District seat in the April 9 election.
Alatorre served in the Assembly from 1973 until 1985, when he was elected to the City Council. The other candidates are David R. Diaz, an environmental planner; Martin GutieRuiz, a community organizer, and John Lucero, a corporate president.
