On September 12th, twelve candidates for both the Charlottesville City Council and the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors crowded onto a dais at the Senior Center for a joint forum. About fifty people attended the event, which was sponsored by the

Senior Statesmen of Virginia

.

Moderator Don Wells told the crowd that the Senior Statesmen feel it’s important for there to be a forum that encompasses the whole city and the county. While many other candidate events are scheduled before the November 6 election, this is the only time that both sets of candidates will appear on the same stage.
