The Kiwanis Club of Huntington Beach held candidate forums in September for Huntington Beach candidates in the upcoming November 2, Huntington Beach election. The Kiwanis Club holds candidate forums in election years as a service to the community.
The Kiwanis Huntington Beach City Council Candidate Forum was held on September 21, 2010, at the Meadowlark Country Club in Huntington Beach. The Kiwanis Huntington Beach City Attorney Candidate Forum and the Orange County Water District Candidate Forum were held jointly on September 28, also at the Meadowlark Country Club.
