The Daily Press hosted a First District Supervisor forum for Supervisor Robert Lovingood and his challenger, Angela Valles. The forum was a lively affair with Lovingood subject to unrelenting attacks by Valles.

Valles launched broadsides on nearly ever facet of Lovingood’s tenure in office, including his broken campaign promises on taxes.
