An excellent opportunity to hear from our political canditates, at Yorktown Oct 11

An excellent opportunity to hear from the political candidates. I read Caren Merrick's literature in the mail today. One of the first items on it was to "increase the capacity of our current transportation infrastructure." Is it just me, or does that sound like a political platform of paving Arlington - widening Rt 66? Maybe one of the young arlington republicans or democrats can ask her that question at the debate.
The Washington-Lee Young Democrats will be assisting the Yorktown Teenage Republicans and the Yorktown Young Democrats in hosting a student-run Candidate's forum on October 11th at 7pm in the Yorktown auditorium.

This event is open to the public; parents and community members are encouraged to attend.  However, the debate will be moderated by students, and the questions asked will all be student questions.  If any student would like to submit a question, please have them e-mail   Questions will need to be submitted by Friday, 10/7 in order to be eligible to be included in the forum on 10/11.

In addition, there will be a non-partisan voter registration drive for students outside the auditorium.  Students wishing to register to vote must be 18 by November 8, 2011 and must have a current driver's license or photo ID with them.

The candidates attending the forum will be:

Senate of Virginia 31st District
Caren Merrick (R)
