Video – Hanover Board of Supervisors Ashland District Forum

For those of you who couldn’t make the Forum on Thursday, here’s the full, unedited video. It was was a great event, and thanks to Faye Prichard and Web Stokes for taking the time to share their thoughts. And special thanks to the forum moderator, Heather Sullivan, and to our co-sponsors for making it happen–the Coalition for Hanover’s Future and the Herald-Progress.

BOS Candidates’ Education Responses Compiled

To make the candidates’ responses easier to access, we’ve compiled them on a single page with links to their full answers. Please take time to read your candidates’ thoughts on important issues surrounding Hanover County Public Schools. Although we’re disappointed that only half of the candidates responded, the responses by the candidates who did are well worth the read. Don’t forget to come to the Ashland District Forum this Thursday, October 8 at Patrick Henry High School, and please vote on November 3!!
