Three Democratic hopefuls were on hand at Saturday’s Democratic Forum held at The Ojai Center for the Arts. Sue Broidy introduced two of the candidates running for the 24th Congressional District, Jill Martinez of Oxnard and Mary Pallant of Oak Park. A third candidate for the seat, Marta Jorgensen of Solvang, did not appear. Their Republican opponent is incumbent Elton Gallegly who has served in this district since 1987. Also present was Ferial Masry, from Newbury Park, who is running for the 37th State Assembly District.
