Meet Candidates at Legislative Summit

(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) The Inland Empire Culture Alliance and Arrowhead Credit Union will host a legislative summit Thursday Oct. 23 at California State University, San Bernardino.

This summit, which will take place from 6 p.m. to about 8 p.m. in the Lower Commons, Pine Room, is an opportunity to meet candidates from Riverside and San Bernardino Counties who are running for office at all levels from local school boards to United States Congress.

“The Inland Empire Cultural Alliance is an informal alliance of the ethnic Chambers of Commerce throughout the Inland Empire,“ said Dolores Armstead, vice president of the Inland Empire African-American Chamber of Commerce. “We have formed the Alliance to provide a format for our communities to meet their future legislators and to be heard.”

All candidates who appear on ballots in San Bernardino or Riverside counties have been invited. They will provide campaign materials and answer questions in a one-on-one setting with constituents.

The Alliance will provide refreshments. For more information, call (909) 888-5223 or email
