Voter Registration Deadline Tuesday

October 13, 2013

Tuesday, Oct. 15 marks the last day to register to vote, and candidates want to remind you that every vote counts.

We are following all of the races very closely this year, but one that has become interesting is the race for the two open seats on Charlottesville City Council. There are two Republican and two Democratic candidates running this year.

Democratic candidate for Charlottesville City Council Bob Fenwick won this year’s primary after a tie, and he hopes that when he is elected, he will be able to keep the council open and honest.

“I keep telling people that I will represent them,” says Fenwick. “We come to the best decisions for the community when the government is open and honest.”

Fenwick is running with incumbent Democratic councilwoman Kristin Szakos.

Charles “Buddy” Weber, a Republican candidate for Charlottesville City Council, believes that people are ready for a different way of thinking in Charlottesville.

"The people in Charlottesville are ready for a change on city council,” says Weber. They are looking for some diversity of thought and they recognize that both [Republican candidate] Mike [Farruggio] and I bring a broad base of experience and knowledge that is missing in Charlottesville City Council."

The last day for in-person absentee voting is Nov. 2. The election is Tuesday, Nov. 5.
