In advance of the May 2nd election for two seats on the

Charlottesville City Council

, almost 17,500 households in the City will receive this week a ten-page non-partisan voter guide, courtesy of

Charlottesville Tomorrow

.  The guide allows voters to compare candidates’ answers to eight questions concerning their priorities and experience for City Council as well as their positions on land use and transportation issues.

Through our website and printed voter guide, we are trying to get detailed information out to voters.  We hope they will find this to be a helpful tool to make an assessment of the candidates running for City Council.  The Voter Guide is a valuable snapshot of each candidate’s position on a number of key issues coming before the community.

The statements in the voter guide are drawn from interviews of all three City Council candidates conducted by Charlottesville Tomorrow. Also available on Charlottesville Tomorrow’s

Election Watch website

are the candidate’s answers to an additional seven questions, their bios and links to complete audio and written transcripts from interviews and all three candidate forums.

Charlottesville Tomorrow does not endorse candidates or make contributions to political campaigns at any level.
