Council Candidate Forums
As a 501(c)3 organization, SPON cannot, and does not, take a position on the merits of candidates for elective office. Providing information to the public is, however, part of SPON’s core mission, and as such — in the interest of an informed electorate — SPON provides links to videos of public election forums, present and past, at which competing candidates for the Newport Beach City Council have expressed their views on issues of interest to residents. To access our full playlist of YouTube videos click on the little horizontal bars in the upper left-hand corner of the video below. Links to additional election forum videos can be found by following the first link above.
