The Free Enterprise Forum and Charlottesville Tomorrow announced today they are co-hosting a City Council candidate forum at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at Burley Middle School. All three candidates seeking the two Democratic Party nominations have agreed to participate in the forum moderated by Brian Wheeler and Neil Williamson.
This free event will feature formal questions regarding each candidate’s individual visions for the future of The City of Charlottesville. After the formal questioning, the candidates will answer questions submitted by the audience and selected by the moderators.
Free Enterprise Forum President Neil Williamson said, “We are excited and proud to lead this important discussion. The very design of our jointly produced program promotes communication between the candidates and potential voters. As non-partisan organizations, our goal is to stimulate interest in the primary process and generate a clear understanding of each candidate’s positions.”
The Free Enterprise Forum is a privately funded public policy organization focused on issues of regional importance in Central Virginia.
