If you haven't returned your CalPERS' Board of Administration ballot, you have until Oct. 2 to get it in. A few folks have called and e-mailed us that they have been holding their vote until they could watch the video from the Sept. 2 candidate's forum at Sacramento's Dante Club. They missed our earlier post and asked that we direct them to it.
We figure that there may be other blog users who want to see the video, so we decided to post it again here.
The Bee's video staff distilled the 28-minute video from two hours of raw footage shot by Kim McElroy of Shout TV, the public access television show devoted to SEIU Local 1000 issues. (Local 1000 doesn't sponsor the show or sanction its content.)
Watch the video and you'll see CalPERS Board of Administration candidates J.J. Jelincic, Inderjit Singh Kallirai and Muriel Strand taking questions from Bee editorial board member Ginger Rutland and the dean of Sacramento's political press corps, columnist Dan Walters. The video also includes closing remarks by each candidate.
Candidates Cathy Hackett, Kurato Shimada, Dan T. Villella and Dennis Yates did not participate.
The Bee and PERSWatch co-sponsored the event. The League of Women Voters moderated.
