Preliminary Debates Scheduled for BOS Matoaca Seat

It has been announced that there will be two debates scheduled in the Fall to be held at Cosby High School where all the candidates seeking the Board of Supervisor position are invited to attend.

The format of this debate as yet to be released. The two debates are sponsored by the Chesterfield Business Council and the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce.

The debate sponsored by the Council is scheduled for October 27, 2007 right before the election in November and a little of a week after the October 17, 2007 debate sponsored by the Chamber.

Once the official format is disclosed and agreed upon by the candidates I will update it as we move forward. It is my hope that there will be a community question format in addition to one where the sponsors ask the questions. Only in that we are really having a true open dialogue and debate about the future. I do not think I could take a debate of countless "softball" questions aimed at favored candidates or the pushing of a groups agenda via a "debate".

Stay tuned.
