Who will you vote for at the June Primary?

Candidates include Janice Kamenir-Reznik, Shawn Bayliss, Richard Mathews, Henry Stern, David Pollock, and George Christopher Thomas.  (See poster below for photos).
There will be a pot luck display of free snacks and beverages — courtesy the Democratic Club Board of Directors — and the forum will begin after opening remarks.  The event will be moderated by Lance Simmens, a Democratic Club board member who has spent nearly four decades involved in public service at all levels of government.  Simmens directed Gasland Grassroots, an organization devoted to public education on fracking.  He was state director of Citizens Trade Campaign, an agency set up to defeat the Trans Pacific Partnership. He served Gov. Jerry Brown as Deputy Director of Communications for the California High-Speed Rail Authority, and spent fifteen years in Federal service, largely serving in senior intergovernmental affairs positions for four Cabinet Secretaries.
What do these candidates stand for, and who can best represent Malibu?
