The five candidates vying for Virginia’s 11th District congressional seat in November will address and take questions Tuesday in a local forum.
Incumbent Gerry Connolly (D), Independents Chris DeCarlo and Mark Gibson, Green Party nominee Joe Galdo and Republican nominee Col. (Ret.) Chris Perkins will be on hand at the 11th District Candidate Forum. Sponsored by the Falls Church Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Merrifield Business Association, the luncheon will be held at the Tysons Corner Marriott from noon to 2 p.m. The candidates will give a few remarks and then turn the program over to the voters in a Q&A session.
Wednesday, DeCarlo, Galdo and Perkins spoke at the Reston Candidates Forum for Congress and touched on transportation funding, federal cuts and the economy. Connelly did not attend the event.
