Warrenton Town Council candidates will participate in an election forum April 30.
Roger R. Martella Jr., David A. Norden, Sean M. Polster and L.P. "Sunny" Reynolds are battling for two at-large seats in the May 6 election.
They will discuss issues and answer questions in the forum, starting at 7 p.m. in the Taylor Middle School auditorium. The event occurs less than a week before voters cast ballots.
The Fauquier County Chamber of Commerce
and the Fauquier Times are jointly sponsoring the forum.
FauquierNow Editor Lawrence Emerson and Times General Manager/Executive Editor Ray Finefrock will pose questions to the candidates — including some submitted by audience members.
Philip Mulford, founder of Mulford Mediation in Warrenton, will moderate the forum — a role he has performed frequently.
Warrenton voters also will choose a mayor May 6, but Ward 1 Councilman Powell Duggan faces no opposition in a bid to succeed Mayor George Fitch, who will step down after 16 years.
Residents must register by 5 p.m. Monday to vote in the municipal election this year.
Taylor Middle School is at 350 E. Shirley Ave. in Warrenton.
