Focus on the 5th a 5th District Candidates Forum is Tonight

Tonight at the Randolph Community Center (1415 Grayland Avenue) from 6:30–8:30 PM learn about the candidates and issues in the 5th District.

Attendance is free but organizers are hoping that you’ll register here so they’ve got a headcount.

A Focus on the 5th is a collaborative civic project of over 17 Richmond-based community organizations. We represent residents and members from all corners of the city committed to seeing our local government deliver smart policies that make Richmond a more equitable, thriving, urban, and progressive place to live. Through questionnaires, forums, and events we hope to educate Richmonders about their elected leaders while keeping those leaders accountable to building a progressive future for our city.

It’s a very crowded field of eight candidates chasing the 5th District seat soon to be vacated by Parker Agelasto. The seat will be filled in a special election set for Nov. 5. There was a similar forum held in September and you can read our take here.
