North Hills West Neighborhood Council in partnership with five other Neighborhood Councils hosted a Candidate Town Hall so that stakeholders could hear directly from the two candidates for City Council in District 12: John Lee and Loraine Lundquist. This was a unique collaboration between North Hills West, Granada Hills South, Granada Hills North, Northridge West, Northridge East and Porter Ranch Neighborhood Councils.

The event was moderated by Tanya McRae from Spectrum News. Over 200 people packed out the Granada Hills Highlander Hall on July 20. Candidates made opening remarks, answered two rounds of questions and then made closing statements.

You may watch the entire proceedings on the below video or if time is short, you may want to catch the opening statements, which are five minutes each, starting at minute 14:25.
