The Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs, ONE-PS, representing the 49 organized neighborhoods in the City of Palm Springs has conducted a series of candidate forums for the November 3rd election highlighting local races. Separate forums for Palm Springs City Council-Districts 4 and 5; Palm Springs Unified School District Board of Trustees-Area 2 and the Desert Water Agency Board of Directors-Division 5 were conducted over the past week.

These forums were recorded online with questions developed through input from the ONE-PS membership and are now posted for viewing and downloading on the ONE-PS website at

Kathy Cohn, ONE-PS Chairperson and moderator for the forums indicated that, “ONE-PS has a long history of conducting candidate forums in an effort to inform our members and the voters of the City about the important issues and the candidates”. The forums provide the viewer with an overview of each candidate’s positions on issues and responses to key questions. The City of Palm Springs Council race in District 4 has three candidates vying for the position and is of particular interest to the voters.

“We are asking our neighborhoods and interested voters to share this important information from our website”, says Bob Farran, Chair of the Candidate Forum Committee, “This is our best opportunity to receive this important information during these difficult times”. The forums will be online through election day. In addition to the forums, the website also contains information about the many activities of the unique neighborhoods within the City.
