It's Your Turn to Ask the City Council Candidates!
What would you ask the City Council candidates?
Civic engagement is what ACTion Alexandria is all about and what's more civic than voting? It's been a boisterous year in city politics, and with more than a baker's dozen worth of candidates running for City Council, it's hard for a lot of us to figure out which candidates best represent our vision for our community.
So, we are turning the tables on traditional political debates by giving YOU the starring role in our online forum.
It's your turn to Ask The Candidates!
If you were moderator of your own City Council candidate debate, what would you ask the candidates? Now's your chance to let the candidates know what you think are the important issues.
Post Your Question
Post your questions in our public forum and/or vote up the questions you most want City Council candidates to answer, and we'll make sure the candidates see them and work with the candidates and political parties to get some responses. Let's create a public forum where everyone can see what Alexandria residents think are the important issues.
To post your question, go to the Ask the City Candidates forum page and click on "Add Your Idea."
We will do everything in our power to keep this forum civil, respectful, and productive. Stick to newspaper comment sections if you're interested in anything else.
