Prop 22 to be Debated, Mayoral Candidates to Speak

Several of Sacramento's mayoral candidates will speak prior to a separate debate on the limit on marriage initiative Proposition 22 during the student-sponsored Political Awareness Day, Tuesday, Feb. 29.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Library Quad, weather permitting. If it rains, events will take place in the University Union Redwood Room.

Sacramento mayoral candidates expected to attend include Ron Anderson, Steve Cohn, Joe Genshlea and Julie Padilla. All of the candidates running for mayor were invited to attend.

At 11 a.m., attending mayoral candidates will participate in a "questions and answers" session led by moderator Artemio Pimental, of the non-partisan student group, Students for Political Awareness.

At noon, supporters and opponents of Proposition 22 will then debate the proposed state initiative that would add a provision to the state's family code that only marriage between a man and a woman is recognized.

Several tables with representatives from various political affiliations and campaigns will also be on hand. Associated Students and Green Thunder are sponsoring the event and will provide free barbecue fare.

More information is available by calling Amabelle Ocampo at (916) 278-6784.
