Thursday night's Board of Supervisors candidates forum was held at the Weyers Cave Community Center and featured all eleven candidates with about 40 spectators. WHSV TV-3's Bob Corso moderated; media coverage was from WHSV TV-3, NBC-29, and the Waynesboro and Staunton newspapers.
The questions centered on conservation-type issues and were answered by each candidate. Many responses concerned the county's comp plan. They ended with a two-minute closing remark from each.
Out of the 11 candidates, six are farmers; one owns a store; five are current Board members; two are retired state employees.
Hope to post more on the forum later....
