Candid with candidates
Community advocate Dan Pressburg hosted a candidate brunch at his North Long Beach home last Saturday morning, attracting area voters and media hoping to meet candidates running for local elected offices. Attendees met and mingled while eating breakfast-type refreshments inside and on the patio of Pressburg’s historic home– a former dairy and creamery.
