If you live in/work in/drive-in/drive-through/worship in Christiansburg, you’ve surely noticed the political signs that have sprouted everywhere. On May 4th, Christiansburg residents will hit the polls to vote for several races, including Council and Mayor. The League of Women Voters has posted videos of the Candidate Forum, held April 15th, on their website … sure wish they would let you embed them.
Now’s as good a time as ever to get caught up on where the candidates stand. There are a lot of issues on the table – how are you going to vote? NRVHub.com has information, as well, and you can find the candidate email addresses listed below … honestly, I find it disappointing that only one candidate, Meghan Dorsett, appears to have a website that addresses the election in any way. It’s probably safe to say that Christiansburg is facing some critical issues during these next terms; this would be a great time for candidates to have a place where residents could go to read about each candidate and learn something other than a soundbite at a forum.
- Margaret “Meghan” Dorsett, Candidate for Mayor
- Richard Ballengee, Candidate for Mayor (incumbent)
- Dan Canada, Candidate for Town Council
- R. Cord Hall, Candidate for Town Council
- Steve Huppert, Candidate for Town Council
- Bradford “Brad” Stipes, Candidate for Town Council (incumbent)
- H. Earnest Wade, Candidate for Town Council (incumbent)
There’s also a Voter Guide that’s available.. Election Day is May 4th, Christiansburg.
