The March 11 Democratic forum for the candidates running for the 15th Assembly District has been cancelled since two of the candidates dropped out of the race. School board Trustee Joan Buchanan, an Alamo resident, is still going strong and has lined up endorsements from Contra Costa County Supervisor Susan Bonilla, Danville Councilman Mike Doyle, former Danville Town Council members Don Ritchey and Barbara Jagger, East Bay Regional Parks District Directors Beverly Lane and Ayn Wieskamp, former Alameda County Fire Chief Bill McCammon and former BART Director Erlene DeMarcus.
Candidate Steve Filson of Danville announced he was suspending his campaign, for "a constellation of reasons both personal and political."
Guy Houston (R., San Ramon) is leaving the Assembly 15th District office due to term limits. Today, March 7, is the last date for candidates to file.
