On September 13, 2007, the Crozet Community Association hosted a candidate forum for the two candidates seeking the White Hall seat on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors.  About 60 residents gathered in the Crozet Fire Station to hear David Wyant (R) and Ann Mallek (D) present their campaign platforms.  The forum was moderated by David Wayland, President of the Crozet Community Association.

The format of the forum was such that each candidate had fifteen minutes to make a presentation followed by a five minute rebuttal by the first candidate.  Wayland flipped a coin and Mallek, winning the toss, gave her opening statement first.  Afterwards, Wayland entertained questions from the audience.  The evening was dominated by growth and development issues in Crozet.  Each candidate had two minutes for closing remarks.
