"I think the League of Women's Voters is doing a service to Butte County," Director of League of Women Voters, Carol Burr said. "We are all in this together. We have some really big issues affecting Butte County right now so we all need to be educated."

The focus of the discussion was public safety. Six candidates came out to meet voters and about 50 people attended the event.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Sunday. We'll be mostly sunny and just about as warm on Monday. A modest cooling trend and the chance for Sierra showers is ahead for Tuesday.
