Seven candidates competing for three seats on the Los Gatos Town Council will debate their ideas Wednesday evening.

The Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce is organizing the forum, set to run on Zoom. It kicks off at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 30. Matt Mahood, President and CEO of the Silicon Valley Organization (SVO), will moderate.

Given the organizing entity, questions will focus on local business and the economy – particularly timely given COVID recovery efforts. To register and submit suggested questions for the candidates, click here.
