A forum for candidates running for Alexandria School Board in District B will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 8 at the Beverley Hills Community United Methodist Church, located at 3512 Old Dominion Blvd.
The North Ridge Citizens Association is organizing the event.
Five candidates are running for school board in District B: Kelly Carmichael Booz, Michael Brookbank, Chyrell Bucksell, Justin Keating and Marc Williams. Williams is the lone incumbent candidate in the district. All five have agreed to attend the Oct. 8 forum.
Chris Yianilos withdrew his candidacy from District B in August, citing family health issues.
Voters in each of the three Alexandria school board districts will vote for up to three candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot.
Just three District C candidates—incumbent Ronnie Campbell, former school board member Pat Hennig and newcomer Chris Lewis—remain in the race after Jeff Zack dropped out in late August. All three are guaranteed a spot on the nine-seat school board.
The District B forum will be held on the same night as a forum for District A candidates at Mount Vernon Community School presented by the Del Ray Citizens Association, the Upper King Street Neighborhood Association and the Warwick Village Citizens Association.
