Candidates for contested Albemarle County Board of Supervisors seats and local House of Delegates districts will debate at The Center on Wednesday.
The Senior Statesmen of Virginia is hosting the candidate forum from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Candidates for the Board of Supervisors will talk for the first hour, with Rich DeMong, president of the Statesmen, moderating. Candidates for the 25th and 58th House districts will speak during the second hour, with Bob McGrath, past president of the Statesmen, moderating.
Organizers said White Hall Supervisor Ann H. Mallek, a Democrat, and opponent Steve Harvey, a Republican, will attend, as will Donna Price, a Democrat who is seeking the Scottsville District seat on the board.
