JoEtta Brown And Greta Hambsch To Debate Opponents Tonight

If you live in or near Douglas County and don't have any plans for tonight I suggest you go to the League of Women Voters candidate forum at the CVIC Hall in Minden. There, candidates for State Assembly and County Commissioner will square off in a debate from 7-9pm, the Record-Courier reports.

Two Democratic candidates will take part. JoEtta Brown, candidate for State Assembly district 39:
The vice president of American Savings bank for 30 years, Brown came up through the ranks in the banking industry.
She testified before the Legislature in support of the 2005 property tax cap and advocates maintaining that 3 percent cap. Quality affordable health care, lowering the cost of prescription drugs and revitalizing education are just a few of Brown's priorities.

Also taking part in the debate will be Greta Hambsch, candidate for County Commissioner from the 4th district:
Hambsch, the only candidate who lives at Lake Tahoe, feels it's more appropriate to have a Lake resident in this seat because the District 4 commissioner serves on the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.
A graduate of the University of California at Irvine with a bachelor's degree in English, Hambsch has owned and operated a property management business, Accomodation Station Inc., at Lake Tahoe for 26 years.

You can read more about JoEtta Brown's views in an exclusive interview she gave to Turn Tahoe Blue.
