Speed-Dating Candi-Date Forum in Loudoun County

For anyone interested, the Loudoun Dems coordinated this event to meet candidates in one setting. If you want to attend, you need to RSVP.It’ll work like this – “The forum will open with brief introductions from each primary candidate. For the “speed-dating” portion, a candidate will be seated with voters and one facilitator at each table/group. A facilitator will begin the discussion by asking one pertinent question. Following the candidate’s response, those seated with the candidate will have the opportunity to ask questions. Each roundtable discussion will last roughly 10 minutes, after which a bell will notify the candidates to move on to the following table. Candidate answers to each question will be limited to accommodate as many questions as possible.”https://www.mobilize.us/loudouncountydemocr…/event/605110/
