In two weeks, everything will be a lot clearer, regarding where your candidates stand in relation to the Port of Long Beach (POLB).
The Second District city council candidates’ forum on port issues has been rescheduled to January 28 at the Reef Restaurant in Long Beach, Harbor Trucking Association (HTA) Executive Director Weston LaBar announced today.
Originally scheduled for tomorrow at the Shoreline Yacht Club, the event was moved by the Harbor Trucking Association (HTA) to the new date, time and location in deference to Mayor Robert Garcia’s State of the City address, scheduled for tomorrow, January 13.
"The port is the essential economic engine that keeps Long Beach prosperous,” said Weston LaBar, executive director of the Harbor Trucking Association in an earlier interview. “We are fortunate to have three very qualified candidates running for the second district and to represent our port on council. The HTA is honored to host a forum on port-related issues to gauge the knowledge of each of the candidates."
According to a release issued today by HTA, the forum will kick off with a 5:00PM reception offering drinks and appetizers, followed by the discussion of port issues between Second District City Council candidates Joen Garnica, Eric Gray and Jeannine Pearce at 6:30PM.
At the end of the program, Long Beach City College (LBCC) will also present certificates to recent graduates of the LBCC/HTA Driver Training Program.
Registration for the event is $50 for non-members of HTA. Click here to attend.
The Reef Restaurant is located at 880 Harbor Scenic Drive.
