The CSD has decided not to air the candidate forum on Channel 20 and did not respond when asked why. Topics discussed are imperative to the future of Los Osos and should be seen by as wide an audience as possible.

You can watch it here, but if you feel it should be shown on channel 20 contact the CSD.

It is time for us to take the reins and further improve our community.”
