Wednesday night CLAD-K, or Community Leadership Alliance for Democracy-Kern, hosted the first of what are said to be several town hall meetings to discuss the needs of Kern County's newest Latino majority district.

The series of meetings aimed at organizing the thoughts and needs of voters in District 4 ahead of November, when a new District 4 county supervisor will be elected.

This coming after a voting rights lawsuit forced Kern County to redraw their voting lines, meaning three of the county's five districts will be electing a new supervisor two years earlier than expected. 

David Couch will be defending his county seat against Delano mayor Grace Vallejo.

CLAD-K organizers say there will be several town hall events in other District 4 cities. The next will be in Shafter on June 6.
