On November 8th, we’ll go to the polls to elect local officials to represent us on the

Charlottesville City Council

and the

Albemarle Board of Supervisors


With issues like the

Western Bypass

, the

water supply plan

, and city-county relations, it’s more important than ever that candidates represent your best interests. Will they make decisions that will protect and build upon the distinctive character of the Charlottesville-Albemarle area?

Here’s one way to find out: this month, we’ll be co-hosting with

The Daily Progress

a series of candidate forums. This time, we don’t just want you to come – we want you to


the audience questions we’ll ask.

where you’ll have the opportunity to submit questions and vote on questions submitted by our community

. The questions with the most votes will have the best chance of being asked!

It’s your home. It’s your life. It’s your commute. It’s your paycheck. It’s your place. They’re your elected officials. So they should be your questions.
