As part of Charlottesville Tomorrow’s coverage of the 2009 local elections for City Council and the Board of Supervisors, we have interviewed each candidate to discuss topics related to water, land use, transportation, their priorities, and their qualifications.

Excerpts from these interviews will be included in our upcoming non-partisan

2009 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 interviews.


Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Election Watch 2009 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.
