Virtual Forum Tomorrow for Contested School Board Election

While they can’t meet in person, the five candidates vying for the Arlington County Democratic Committee’s School Board endorsement will meet virtually tomorrow (Tuesday) for a debate.

There are two spots opening on the School Board, with incumbents Tannia Talento and Nancy Van Doren not running for reelection. The candidates seeking the Democratic endorsement are Steven KriegerCristina Diaz-TorresDavid PriddySandy Munnell, and Terron Sims. A sixth candidate, Symone Walker, is no longer seeking the Democratic endorsement and is instead running as an independent.

The debate will be streamed on Facebook Live on the Arlington Young Democrats page starting at 7 p.m., according to the event listing.

Questions for the forum should be sent in advance online.

“We are excited to be hosting a forum along with Arlington Dems before the deadline to request a School Board caucus ballot,” Arlington Young Democrats said on the event page. “Arlington registered voters may request a ballot by (a) completing and submitting an online ballot request form or (b) downloading and mailing a PDF version of the ballot request form. (We also are happy to provide a hard copy printout of the ballot request form to anyone who needs one.)”

To vote in the caucus, ballots must be received by May 7.
