Come Meet the Kanawha Valley Candidates! 

Citizens for Clean Elections, a new coalition of groups (including WV-CAG) and individuals, was formed this spring to support the West Virginia Clean Elections Act and to promote Clean Money election reform in West Virginia. Citizens for Clean Elections will be holding a candidate forum on Tuesday, October 15. The forum will be held at Christ Church United Methodist at 1221 Quarrier Street in Charleston. There will be a reception with light refreshments beginning at 6:30pm in the Potter Room. The forum itself starts at 7:00pm with the showing of "On the Road to Clean Elections," a video narrated by journalist Bill Moyers, highlighting the success of Clean Elections in Maine and Arizona. Candidates will be asked to respond to the video and share their thoughts on the Clean Elections alternative. The public will be given an opportunity to ask questions on other issues as well. All legislative candidates from Kanawha County and surrounding counties have been invited. Please attend, and spread the word.
