Elk Grove News Podcasts - 2020 Elk Grove Mayoral Forum

Opening remarks by Waldo Herrera of the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce at the Elk Grove 2020 mayoral forum. | 

On Tuesday, September 29, the Elk Grove Chamber of commerce, in association with the Elk Grove Citizen held a 2020 Elk Grove mayoral forum at the Wackford Center.

The event was mired with background noise from protestors outside the venue, and according to one person inside the forum, a deficient technological set up by the sponsors.

On this edition of Elk Grove News Podcast is an audio recording from that Zoom meeting.

The forum was originally scheduled for one hour but was cut short to about 48 minutes because of the poor audio quality.

Our recording is slightly less as several long pauses where there was no audio were cut. None of the comments have been removed for the recording. 

The opening comments were from Waldo Herrera of the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce.

Below is a guide to time marks in the audio, and responses from Mayor Steve Ly, Brian Pastor, and Bobbie Singh-Allen.
