Students Host Congressional Forum

"We are no longer passive participants in the political process. We are not the silent majority. We are vocal, and we are here to hold our elected officials accountable for their actions, opinions and words," junior Kira Mok told the crowd at Tuesday's congressional forum. Eight candidates for the hotly contested 49th District Congressional seat fielded questions from both Pacific Ridge and La Jolla Country Day School students on topics including gun safety, sexual harassment, immigration and more. Moderator Scott Lewis, editor of Voice of San Diego, ensured the students got their answers and held candidates accountable.
