All three candidates for the District 1 seat attended Monday night's forum.

They are incumbent Victor Hernandez, Frank Gutierrez, and Lana Bear Moore.

District 3 candidate Jeff Griffith did not attend, but his challengers Deanne Clark and Maurice Stanley were there.

Current District 3 Representative Todd Klein is not seeking re-election.
