Meet the 2022 candidates at Cypress City Council Candidate Forum

The Cypress Chamber of Commerce will once again host the Cypress City Council Candidate Forum for the 2022 City Council
Election. The Cypress Chamber has been informing the community by conducting city council candidate forums for over four decades.

Three seats on the Cypress City Council are up for consideration for 2022 and the candidates include: David Burke, Carrie Hayashida, Helen Le, Terry Miller, Scott Minikus, Bonnie Peat and Rachel Strong.

This year the event will be held live at Cypress College on Wednesday September 28 th from 6:00-8:30pm and the public is
invited to make a reservation to attend. It will take place at Cypress College but due to pandemic restrictions and the video
recording of this event, seating is very limited and will quickly reach capacity.

Doors open at 5:45pm and no one will be seated after 6:25pm to assure a strict 6:30pm start time.

PRE-Registration will be required. To reserve your spot online visit the Chamber website at https://www.cypresschamber.org/events/details/2022-cypress-city-council-candidate-forum-2647.

If you cannot attend in-person, our forum will be video recorded and made available on many social media platforms via YouTube. Plus you can still participate early by submitting questions for the candidates no later than 24 hours in advance to [email protected]. We will attempt to ask as many
questions as possible in the time permitted.

The generous sponsors who are helping make the forum possible include Forest Lawn of Cypress, Cypress College, OC-Breeze, Kinetic Mortgage and ECOS.

  1. Cypress is a fantastic community thanks to having a fiscally responsible majority city council. We have the lowest sales tax of all the cities that border us. Our 7.75% sales tax is the same as Buena Park and Anaheim and those cities need theme parks to make it happen.

    Cypress also has no utility tax.

    The leftists in our community want to take one or two issues and highlight them. While there’s always room for improvement, our fiscally responsible City Council majority has done a great job!

    If we elect leftists like “Marxist Marquez,” we could find ourselves destroying the very things that have made this city so unique.

    1. Since name-calling is permitted with regard to city council members, how about the ethically challenged fascists that give sweetheart deal(s) to the trash collection contractor. These same fascists don’t consult the public about it and censure a fellow council member who argues. Then their public backers label that council member a a Marxist whenever any issue is taken with the city government.
