The rescheduled forum for candidates on Leesburg’s mayoral and Town Council ballot is set for this upcoming Monday, Oct. 15. Originally set for Sept. 13, the forum was postponed because of concern about inclement weather from Hurricane Florence.
All eight candidates gunning for either the mayor’s post or one of three Town Council seats on November’s ballot have been invited to participate. The candidate forum will run from 7-9 p.m. at the Leesburg Senior Center, located at 102 North St. NW. Participants will be invited to pose questions to the candidates. Loudoun NowPublisher Norman K. Styer will be the moderator for the forum.
Mayor Kelly Burk is challenged for her seat by fellow council members Tom Dunn and Ron Campbell. Incumbent council members Suzanne Fox, Marty Martinez and Vanessa Maddox will vie to retain their three seats against challengers Kari Nacy and Neil Steinberg.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
