Cal Poly will play host to a forum for the two candidates seeking to represent the 24th District in the U.S. Congress, Salud Carbajal and Justin Fareed. The candidates will be taking questions from a live audience and KSBY's social media platforms this Thursday, October 20 event, in the Spanos Theatre.

California’s 24th Congressional District includes Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and northern Ventura counties, stretching along some 200 miles of coast from Ventura to Ragged Point at the San Luis Obispo-Monterey county line, and running inland to the Temblor Range at the edge of the San Joaquin Valley and south to Los Padres National Forest. The Santa Barbara County candidates are seeking to succeed Democrat Lois Capps, who is retiring after nearly two decades in the House of Representatives. The event, moderated by KSBY News anchor Carina Corral, will broadcast live on KSBY-TV (NBC) and live-stream in its entirety at KSBY News.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and seating will be on a first-come basis, so plan to arrive early! Approximately 350 seats will be available to the public. Doors will close at 6:15 p.m. and the live broadcast will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Complimentary parking will be available in the Grand Avenue parking structure.

The event is sponsored by KSBY-TV, Cal Poly, Associated Students Inc., the College of Liberal Arts, the Political Science Department, and the League of Women Voters.

NOTE TO MEDIA: Members of the media who plan to attend are asked to email Rachel Schultz at the number of seats needed. There will be space for video and audio recording in the theater’s technical booth. All recording is embargoed until after the event.
