Voters in Charlottesville will go to the polls this may to elect two city councilors and three members of the school board. Council has always been elected, but this is the first time in several decades that the electorate has a chance to decide who will govern the city’s schools. Though the elections are non-partisan, Charlottesville city Democrats held the first of many candidates forums on Saturday, March 18, with all six candidates in attendance. The event moderated by Sean O’Brien of the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership, who now takes over our recording.
