The three candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for the two seats on the Charlottesville City Council spent two hours on April 21, 2009 answering questions on the water supply, the Meadowcreek Parkway, the City’s efficiency study, Council priorities, and other community issues. The event was co-sponsored by Charlottesville Tomorrow and the Free Enterprise Forum in advance of the Charlottesville Democratic Party’s unassembled caucus to be held on May 9, 2009. The general election is this November.
About 50 people attended the forum which was held at Burley Middle School in Charlottesville. The candidates in order of appearance are incumbents Julian Taliaferro and Dave Norris, and challenger Kristin Szakos.
