Voters and Viewers

You are going to want to tune into KOCT, Channel 18 next Thursday, May 1st at 6 pm for a special LIVE Journalist Roundtable.  This will be the last program in our June Primary Series and we’ve saved the best for last.

Two experienced politicians running for the San Diego County Board of Supervisor, 5th District seat, will discuss the issues, their points-of-view and answer questions from our three journalists.

Incumbent Supervisor Bill Horn and Mayor Jim Wood will be our guests for this one-hour program that is hosted by the former Editor of the North County Times, Kent Davy. He is joined by columnist for the San Diego U-T Logan Jenkins and Alison St. John of KPBS radio and television.

The two candidates previously squared off in a forum at MiraCosta College that was hosted by the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce.  You will be able to watch that program throughout the month of May on KOCT’s community channel 18 AND on Video on Demand via KOCT.ORG.

All candidates for the June primary election are invited to our Journalist Roundtable  program unfortunately incumbent District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis did not participate in our April program however, candidates Bob Brewer and Terri Wyatt did.

In order to help you make an informed decision KOCT  will air all of these June Primary shows extensively on KOCT right up to the June 3rd Election. If one of your friends express confusion on who to vote for why not help them out and send a Video On Demand LINK to them so they can watch on their iPad, smartphone or computer?? 

The 5th Supervisor race is starting to heat up judging by some of the campaign material voters are receiving. Next weeks Journalist Roundtable programs will give each of these experienced politicians an opportunity to defend, refute and explain their positions with a little more detail than you can find on a glossy postcard.

Tune In—as our Host Kent Davy says ‘It’s good TV ‘.
