Cypress Council candidate forum now posted to YouTube

On Wednesday, September 30, the Cypress Chamber of Commerce hosted a virtual candidate forum for those running for City Council in Cypress. The forum was significantly sponsored by Southern California Gas, with other sponsors including Kinetic Mortgage, The Burtle Team Real Estate, and Creative Media Recording.

The forum was moderated by Tim Keenan of Creative Media Recording.

The entire event was great, especially in contrast to Tuesday evening’s Presidential debate disaster.

If you missed the forum, we here at Orange County Breeze heartily endorse watching the cleaned-up version available through YouTube:


  1. Would it be possible to tell us which candidates are Democrat & which candidates are Republican? Thank you.

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      Cypress City Council elections are non-partisan, which means that candidates are not required to state their affiliation with a political party.

      That question may be addressed to individual candidates, but they are not required to answer.

      The single Council candidate that I can make an informed guess about is Frances Marquez. As she was employed by Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D) and has received union funding in both her prior and current Council campaigns, it is a safe guess that she is a registered Democrat.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.

      Stay safe, stay healthy!

  2. Of course the Cypress City Council forum was a success moderated by Tim Keenan. Had it been moderated by the absolutely partisan and awful (Democrat) Chris Wallace it would have been a disaster. Thank you.
