Democrat Edward Headington (L) and Republican Scott Wilk (R)
Looks like the November general election season has already started and it is not even Labor Day.
It’s an unscripted opportunity for local business leaders to question the two candidates who are vying to become the Santa Clarita Valley’s next representative in the California Assembly: Democrat Edward Headington and Republican Scott Wilk will be the special guests at the Valley Industry Association’s August luncheon.
“No scripts, no questions off limits,” said VIA CEO/President Kathy Norris. “This is a great opportunity for our business community to get to know both candidates as the November election approaches. It’s an important election for our community and I know we’ll have some great questions for them both to answer.”
Wilk and Headington will each have an opportunity to present comments about their candidacies, and will field questions directly from the floor. Jason Schaff, executive editor of The Signal newspaper, will serve as moderator.
The winner of the Headington-Wilk race in November will replace veteran Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, who is leaving office after this year due to term limits.
The luncheon is scheduled 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, August 21, at the Valencia Country Club, 27330 Tourney Road, Valencia, and reservations are required.
Reservations can be made by calling the VIA office at (661) 294-8088, or through the VIA website: https://www.via.org/Calendar/EventDetails.aspx?id=202
If you want to check it out, I am positive the luncheon will not disappoint.
By the way, Scott Wilk is a heavy favorite to win this “safe” Republican California Assembly district this fall.
