Candidates running for three seats on the Benicia Unified School District Governing Board answered questions on topics ranging from new Common Core standards to teacher tenure during a public forum Saturday.
The forum was organized by the League of Women Voters Benicia, Open Government Commission and American Association of University Women, which have taken no position on any of the issues or candidates in the upcoming November election.
About 20 people attended the forum, which will be rebroadcast on local public access channels.
Four candidates are running for three seats. Diane Ferrucci is the only challenger, and all three incumbents — Steve Messina, Peter Morgan and Rose Switzer — are seeking reelection.
