Speak UP Forum Jan. 9: First Joint Appearance For LAUSD BD4 Candidates

All four candidates running to represent LAUSD Board District 4 in the March 7 election will appear together for the first time at the Speak UP Candidate Forum in Venice on Jan. 9 from 6-8 p.m.

Candidates Gregory Martayan, Nick Melvoin, Allison Holdorff Polhill and Steve Zimmer will each give a brief introductory statement at the forum, followed by a question and answer session moderated by Speak UP Co-Founder Katie Braude.

All Speak UP members are invited to attend the forum and submit potential questions for the candidates. To be added to the invitation or submit a question, please email info@speakupparents.org, putting “Candidate Forum” in the subject line.

For those who cannot attend the Candidate Forum in person, Speak UP will also stream the forum live on the Speak UP Facebook page and will publish the candidates’ answers to a Speak UP candidate questionnaire on our website.  

Speak UP's endorsement committee will meet the morning after the forum to review the candidates' responses and make their endorsement recommendations to the Speak UP Board of Directors, whose vote determines the final endorsements.

All Level 2 and 3 Speak UP members are invited to join the Issues and Endorsements Committee and participate in the meeting by emailing info@speakupparents.org, with “Issues and Endorsements” in the subject line. If you have not yet picked a membership level, or would like to change your status, you can do so at www.speakupparents.org/join.

Thank you for helping us in our mission to put kids first by elevating our collective parent voice.

We hope to see you there.
