As part of Charlottesville Tomorrow's coverage of the 2007 local elections for City Council and the Board of Supervisors, we have interviewed each candidate to discuss topics related to land use, transportation, and community design issues.   

Excerpts from these interviews will be included in our upcoming non-partisan 2007 Voter Guide which will be mailed to each household with one of these races on the ballot.  In the meantime, we are publishing the complete audio recordings and transcripts of our interviews.  Visit Charlottesville Tomorrow's Election Watch 2007 website for even more detailed information on the candidates including, bios, campaign finance reports, other videos and podcasts, and the schedule of upcoming candidate forums.
