As part of Charlottesville Tomorrow’s coverage of the 2007 local
elections for City Council and the Board of Supervisors, we have
interviewed each candidate to discuss topics related to land use,
transportation, and community design issues.
Excerpts from these interviews will be included in our upcoming
non-partisan 2007 Voter Guide which will be mailed to each household
with one of these races on the ballot. In the meantime, we are
publishing the complete audio recordings and transcripts of our
Visit Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Election Watch 2007
website for even more detailed information on the candidates including,
bios, campaign finance reports, other videos and podcasts, and the
schedule of upcoming candidate forums.
