On April 17th the Porterville Area Republican Assembly - PARA - will be hosting a public forum and "Republican Round Up" of GOP candidates who aspire to public office.
Three (3) political offices and several candidates are confirmed for this Republican Rodeo, which includes Mike Boudreaux and Dave Whaley vying for Tulare County Sheriff - Rudy Mendoza, Devon Mathis and Esther Barajas campaigning for the 26th Assembly seat and Porterville City Councilman Greg Shelton who is running for the Fifth District Board of Superiors.
Each candidate will be given five (5) minutes to speak, address a few issues from the members of PARA and then answer a few questions from the audience.
Endorsements for these three offices will be made by PARA members in attendance - by ballots turned in that evening - and will be announced, via a PRESS RELEASE, no later than April 30th.
