Norfolk GAINS candidate forum 4/25

Norfolk GAINS – Growing and Investing In Norfolk Schools – is hosting a candidate forum Wednesday, April 25 at Ruffner Academy Middle School, 489 Tidewater Drive, beginning at 6:30pm. The four candidates vying for Ward 6 and the two candidates vying for Ward 7 will all be in attendance. (Click on image to enlarge)

The focus of this forum is education. Norfolk GAINS is a community group, open to all residents of the city, “working to raise awareness about the value of public education.”

I’ve written previously about how important schools are to most people’s largest asset: their homes. I’m glad to see an organization sprout in Norfolk that is concerned about them.

Wednesday’s forum is open to the public. I plan to be there. Hope you can make it, too!
