As we mentioned Monday, The Bee and PERSWatch are co-sponsoring a Sept. 2 debate between candidates for the at-large seat on CalPERS's Board of Administration. Click here for that earlier post, which has all the pertinent details about the event, which is open to the public, at Sacramento's Dante Club and the election that runs from Sept. 4 to Oct. 2.
Pam Dinsmore, The Bee's director of public affairs, tells us that our videographers will be on hand to record the event and, after editing it, we'll have a link to the video that you can view.
In addition, The Bee's columnist Dan Walters and editorial writer Ginger Rutland are now lined up for the debate panel, according to Dinsmore and PERSWatch's James McRitchie.
Walters and Rutland will ask candidates questions during the second part of the forum after the audience members get their chance, says McRitchie, who invited all of the candidates.
Here's the list of candidates who are in, out and uncommitted:
Inderjit Singh Kallirai
Dan T. Villella
Two seats are up for election with separate votes. Kurato Shimada and Inderjit Singh Kallirai are running against each other for one seat. The other five candidates are running for the other seat.
