Equality Fairfax is hosting a discussion forum for the Virginia Senate on Thursday, September 27th at MCC NOVA in Fairfax County.
If you live in the 34th Senate District (Vienna, Oakton, Fairfax, Fair Oaks), then you have a choice between the incumbent Jeannemarie Devolites-Davis and challenger Chap Petersen. Both candidates will be at the forum.
If you live in the 37th Senate District (Centreville, Burke, Fairfax (Government Center & along Fairfax County Parkway), parts of Springfield), you have a choice between incumbent Ken Cucinelli and challenger Janet Oleszek. Senator Cucinelli, not surprisingly, declined to appear but his challenger will be there.
If you live in the 39th Senate District (Clifton, Fairfax Station, Lorton, parts of Springfield, Franconia, and the Occoquan District in Prince William County), then your choice is between the incumbent Jay O’Brien and challenger George Barker. Senator O’Brien declined to attend (again, no great surprise), but George Barker will be in attendance.
If you live in those districts or have friends that live in those districts you may want to attend. It’s a chance to talk to the candidates on the issues that matter to you.
