RAFOM candidates' forum

Candidates for local elected offices gave presentations and answered questions at this past Wednesday night's Radnor/Ft. Myer (RAFOM) Civic Association meeting.  The decisions of local officials probably have a greater effect on your day-to-day quality of life than do the decisions of state and national officials, so good local government has great practical importance.  Linked below are videos of the candidates' opening statements and response statements.  Also included are links to the candidates websites.   Caren Merrick, candidate for the Senate of Virginia, 31st District, was the only candidate who did not appear at the forum.  The general election is on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011.

Senate of Virginia, 31st District
 House of Delegates, 48th District
Commonwealth's Attorney
Commissioner of Revenue
County Board (two seats)
School Board
