2nd F.C. Candidate Forum Set Oct. 8

A second Community Issues Forum for Falls Church City Council and School Board candidates has been set for Thursday, Oct. 8, according to Ken Feltman. Last month’s forum drew five of nine School Board candidates and three of five Council candidates. Council candidate and former F.C. Vice Mayor Sam Mabry, one of the absentees from the July forum, has notified the organizers that he will be unable to participate in October.

Peg Willingham, chair of the F.C. City Democratic committee, will chair the forum and Sally Ekfelt of Citizens for a Better City will be the moderator.

The forum is dedicated to providing citizens with information for decision-making on issues and candidates and to providing a fair and efficient way for candidates to reach the voters, Feltman, chair of the City’s Republican Committee, said in a statement.
