State, local groups host candidates' forum in Woodbridge

By KEITH WALKER, News Messenger

State legislators and candidates met for a couple of hours Saturday in a friendly forum hosted by St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Woodbridge. Questions from moderator John Horejsi, the coordinator for Social Action Linking Together, or SALT, centered around business subsidies, education, predatory lending and other subjects. Participation on the panel was fluid, with some candidates leaving early while others arrived late. Most were around long enough to contribute at least some of their thoughts during the forum sponsored by Virginia Organizing, Virginia Coalition of Latino Organizers, Prince William Education Association and Citizens United for Rehabilitation of Errants along with SALT.
