Local elections matter. 5,186 people voted in 2011; that’s not many people.
The three candidates for the Rivanna District have had the audio and video from their interviews posted. Charlottesville Tomorrow is holding their Rivanna District Candidate forum on 10 September at 6pm.
If you’re interested (and if you’re in the Rivanna District, you should be), spend a few minutes listening to these their interviews, and then go to the forum, introduce yourself (because you can, we’re a small town!) and get involved.
More often than not, meeting someone, looking them in the eye and having a conversation is more effective than a Like or a Tweet. Really.
