MBUSD Candidates Forum at Mira Costa
Manhattan Beach School board incumbent Jen Fenton, and challengers Wysh Weinstein, and Tina Shivpuri participated in an hour and a half long forum Wednesday night at the Mira Costa Small Theater. The three are contending for three open school board seats, along with three other candidates who chose not to participate in the forum. The forum was moderated by Fatima Malik and hosted by the League of Women Voters Beach Cities, and Easy Reader. Candidates Johnny Uriostegu, Mike Welsh and Christi Barnes submitted a statement read at the forum saying they were not participating because they believed the ground rules for the debate were overly restrictive.
