Candidates who qualify to run under a non-primary process prior to the forum may also be invited.
Candidates confirmed to participate include:
Virginia Senate District 14

- Katie B. A. Gooch
Virginia House of Delegates District 79
- Rae C. Cousins
- Richmond City Councilwoman Ann-Frances Lambert

Candidates will be asked a series of questions relevant to our neighborhood about safety and traffic concerns, the combined sewer overflow (CSO) project to address contamination of the James River, casino gambling, and more. If time allows, attendees may ask questions of the candidates, as well.
Please plan to join us!
