From page A4 | April 15, 2014 |

The Avid Reader is hosting three programs on current issues in the next two weeks. Two are part of the bookstore’s ongoing “Solutions” series, and the other a City Council candidates’ forum on the subject of downtown Davis.
The first program on voter outreach runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 16. The featured presenter is Jenna Jae Templeton, director of education and outreach at the Yolo County Elections Office. The plan includes a student outreach effort called the University of Democracy. Templeton has served the city of Davis as vice chair of its Social Services Commission.
The second program is a City Council candidates’ forum hosted by Davis Downtown from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 23. Candidates are current Council member Rochelle Swanson, current school board member Sheila Allen, Assembly candidate and former school board member John Munn, public health professional Robb Davis, and solar power entrepreneur Daniel Parrella.
Questions will be posed by downtown businesses and attendees on priorities, which include buy local Davis, parking, economic development, densification and sales tax.
The third program on Common Core will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 29. Lydia Gutierrez, candidate for California state superintendent of public instruction, will be the speaker. She will address her concerns about the standards that include their origins and objectives, their implementation nationwide, how they compare to the current standards, especially in English and math, the extent of data collection, and parents’ options for participation.
All programs take place at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. They are free and open to the public.
