UPDATE AUG. 27 2pm

Last minute Walk-in registrations are now OK.  Over 200 people pre-registered online using Eventbrite. The event has been moved to a  larger auditorium to meet the demand.  If you are a walk-in today, staff from Microsoft and the Chamber will help you register and make a name tag.  Please join us for this much anticipated event.


The League of Women Voters and the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce are jointly hosting an August 27 forum for Mountain View City Council Candidates 2014 from 6 to 8 pm. Many thanks to Microsoft Corporation for providing the venue for the forum and the reception which follows the forum.

The forum will be conducted following League Q&A protocols, but with Oscar Garcia, President & CEO of the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce, acting as forum moderator.

This year, with 3 open seats and 9 candidates, the make-up of our Mountain View City Council will change significantly.  In what is expected to be one of the most contested candidate races, your vote will influence the dynamics of Mountain View. Please join us and hear from the candidates directly on issues that will impact our community now and in the future.

** Question cards for the Candidates will be collected in the 30 minutes before the forums and also during the forum.**
