With a deep commitment to the separation between church and state AND the understanding that our faith is deeply political, FPCPA and its members have a long history of engagement with issues that matter to Palo Alto and the world. It is in that tradition that this year, Pastor Bruce will be interviewing all of the candidates for Palto City Council Council via webinar as well as the outgoing mayor, Adrian Fine, who is not running for reelection.
As with previous FPCPA Webinars, these will be held on the Zoom Webinar platform and will include time for Questions and Answers. These interviews are also done in partnership with Pastor Bruce’s Podcast, BRC and Friends and will be shared there as well.
- To provide a space for constituents and interested parties to get to know the candidates beyond what can be done in an all-candidate forum.
- To provide candidates a space where they can share more deeply about who they are as people, not just politicians.
- To build broader relationships between the City Council and Palo Alto faith communities.
