Candidate Forum- VA 5th Congressional District

March 6 @ 7:00 pm

Indivisible Nelson will hold a public forum featuring the four candidates seeking the Democratic Party nomination for the Fifth District House of Representatives seat currently held by Republican Tom Garrett.

The forum will be held on Tuesday, March 6 at 7 p.m. at the Nelson Center on U.S. 29 in Lovingston. All questions for the candidates must be submitted by email by Friday, March 2 and will be edited to avoid duplication. Please avoid lengthy questions and/or statements of positions. Send your questions to Larry Stopper at larrystopper353@gmail.com.

The candidates who have committed to appearing at the forum are: Leslie Cockburn, Ben Cullup, Roger Dean Huffstettler and Andrew Sneathern. The nominee will be chosen at a Fifth District Convention, probably on May 5. Local caucuses to choose delegates to the convention will be held earlier in March or April.
