This week you have perhaps your last chance before the Absentee Ballots come out to get a look at candidates in the June 5 primary. On Thursday, most of the candidates running for First District Supervisor and the 8th Congressional District will be at the Apple Valley Golf Course for a casual meet-n-greet with voters. Come by between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. and get up close and personal with these folks. Your likely Supervisor and Congressperson will be among them somewhere.
