The candidates in Ward 7 are:

Click on the candidate’s name to access their websites, where most have links to their Facebook pages and Twitter accounts. Note that * = incumbent.

I renew my offer to the candidates to submit an article for publication here about why you are running and what you hope to accomplish – or whatever topic you feel the voters of Norfolk should know. Use the Contact Me link to do so.

I will be writing more about these contests in the coming weeks.
