Candidate Debate Tonight

The Alexandria Democratic Committee is sponsoring a debate among its primary candidates for the May 4 City Council race. The forum will be held tonight (Thursday, January 22) from 7 to 9 PM at Francis C. Hammond Middle School located at 4646 Seminary Road.

The primary candidates are former Mayor Kerry Donley, current Vice Mayor Del Pepper, incumbent Council members Rob Krupicka, Tim Lovain, Paul Smedberg, and Justin Wilson, and challenger Boyd Walker.

No similar event has been scheduled for the Republican party in Alexandria, although two candidates have announced they will run: Phil Cefaratti and Frank Fannon.

The Democratic forum will be an excellent opportunity to ask the candidates about their positions on issues of importance to our neighborhood.

So get out there and put them on the spot ...
