Folsom City council Candidates Night in the Historic District was held Monday evening, in the grand historic Granite Grammar School Auditorium now known as “Granite Center.”

Judge Steven C Bailey from the superior court of El Dorado County acted as moderator. Judge Bailey did a splendid job and he and his wife Kathleen were guests at Folsom’s top of the line Hilton Garden Hotel, thanks to manager Maureen.
