Alt Daily and Unitarian Church of Norfolk cosponsor a mayoral candidates forum to be held at the church at 1:30 PM Sunday April 10. This forum is designed to be a philosophical discussion emphasizing the candidates’ vision and goals for the city and their service as mayor. If you are a Norfolk voter, please plan to attend this important presentation.
This program is a cornerstone event in Alt Daily’s Vote Norfolk project which seeks to improve citizen engagement in city affairs and elections. Typically, 15 percent of the electorate votes in the spring municipal election and working class participation falls to 8 to 9 percent.“Decisions are made by those who show up.” Typically, 16,000 voters choose the elected officials to represent the 240,000 Norfolk residents.
