“We are proud to continue our partnership with The California Channel on the Free Air Time Project,” said Carol Moon Goldberg, Voter Service Director of the League of Women Voters of California Education Fund. “Californians get an intimate look at the candidates for statewide office with answers from the candidates themselves, not from ads or sound-bites.  We consider the Free Air Time one of the League’s most valuable tools for providing nonpartisan information to California voters in this election”.

“These interviews are invaluable educational resources that allow voters to learn about the candidates and issues that shape our great state,” said John Hancock, President of The California Channel. “We hope that voters will turn to The California Channel for these unedited in-depth interviews, and that they vote with the power that knowledge gives on November 6th”.
