Students of West Hollywood College Preparatory School (WHCP) will moderate a “challengers debate” with candidates for the West Hollywood City Council on Wednesday, Feb. 20.
Candidates Sam Borelli, Nick Garzilli, Christopher Landavazo, Steve Martin and Rusty Wiggs will be participating. Incumbents Jeffrey Prang and John Duran cannot attend due to their work schedules, according to debate organizer Guy Lande, who teaches U.S. government and history at WHCP.

The school is asking those who want to attend to RSVP with Uri-Guy Lande at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (323) 640-1568 by Monday, Feb. 18.
