A free forum tonight (May 15) will question the Hunter Mill District Supervisor candidates just on the Town of Vienna.
Vienna Votes, a new voter outreach initiative in the Town of Vienna, will host the forum at the Vienna Community Center (120 Cherry Street SE) from 6-9 p.m.
Five Democrats have jumped into the race for the seat, which oversees Reston and Vienna. Cathy Hudgins, who currently holds the seat, announced her decision in January to retire after her current term ends.
Vienna Votes posted on Facebook that all five candidates have said they will participate in the forum. They are:
- Former Fairfax County Planning Commissioner Walter Alcorn
- Lawyer Laurie Dodd
- Comstock Companies executive Maggie Parker
- U.S. Air Force veteran and community advocate Shyamali Hauth
- Recent Roanoke College graduate Parker Messick
Vienna Votes was launched in March to help citizens have easy access to voting resources and information.
From Vienna Votes’ Facebook:
The Vienna Votes Project has organized this casual forum to hear what all five candidates on the ballot have to say about Vienna. Please join us this Wednesday, May 15th and, more importantly, remember to vote in June. High voter turnout signals to our elected officials that Vienna is an active and engaged population that will be paying attention!
The forum will consist of questions entirely about the Town of Vienna. That discussion will be held from 6:30-8:30 PM although some candidates will be available before and after for one-on-one conversations. Have other obligations that evening? This is a casual event and you are welcome to come in/out anytime between 6 PM and 9 PM.
The Democratic primary is June 11.
