Forum for candidates next Wednesday

The Stafford Branch of the NAACP is holding a Political Action Forum next Wednesday evening, at 7 p.m. Oct 5 at Brooke Point High School, 1700 Courthouse Road.

At least 13 of 18 candidates for upcoming elections will be attending, said political action chair Charlotte Van Horn in an email. Three Board of Supervisors seats and the constitutional officers will be on the ballot in November, along with three school board seats. The NAACP encourages all county residents to attend.

We’re working on the paper’s election coverage for the next month, so tell me, what are some of the things that you think are important for candidates to address during this period and the upcoming forum?
