Printer-friendly version of this post Printer-friendly version of this post
California Congressional District 47

The Cypress Chamber of Commerce, in association with the Cypress College Political Science Club, will host a candidate forum on Wednesday, April 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Room 131 of the Humanities Building on the Cypress College Campus, 9200 Valley View Street in Cypress.

On hand will be candidates running for the newly created 47th Congressional District that includes Cypress. The District straddles the Los Angeles-Orange County line, stretching from the Terminal Island Freeway on the west to as far east as North Harbor Blvd. in Garden Grove.

According to the certified list of candidates published by the Secretary of State, the following people are running:

  • Democrats
    • Alan Lowenthal
    • Peter Mathews
    • Jay Shah
    • Usha Shah
  • Republicans
    • Gary DeLong
    • Steve Foley
    • Sanford W. Kahn
    • Steven T. Kuykendall

Because of the new open-primary law, registered voters are not limited to voting for candidates for their own political party. Whichever two candidates receive the most votes will advance to the general election in November, regardless of party.

No reservations are required to attend the candidate forum, but seating is limited. The forum is free, and so is parking at the College.

For more information, call the Cypress Chamber of Commerce at 714-827-2430.
