A forum for candidates running for Alexandria School Board in District A will be held from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 8 at the Mount Vernon Community School auditorium.
The forum is being hosted by three neighborhood groups—the Del Ray Citizens Association, the Upper King Street Neighborhood Association and the Warwick Village Citizens Association.
The format and the moderator will be determined at a later date. The event takes the place of October's DRCA meeting.
Six candidates are running for school board in District A: Bill Campbell, Karen Graf, Stephanie Kapsis, Helen Morris, Joyce Rawlings and Heath Wells. Morris is the lone incumbent.
Candidate Scott Gordon dropped out of the District A race in July after Patch revealed he lied about holding a PhD.
Wells will be out of town for the October forum and will not be participating.
Voters in District A will vote for up to three candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot.
