West End Business Association Announces Interview Series with City Council Candidates

In the build up to the June 8th primary, the West End Business Association has announced that it will host a series of interviews with candidates to discuss how they plan to support the city’s West End.

The first in the series, an interview with incumbent City Council member Canek Aguirre, is scheduled for Thursday, March 4 from 1-2 p.m. The discussion will be hosted by Paul Friedman, WEBA government relations chair.

“WEBA wants to help you be informed as you prepare to attend the upcoming Primary on June 8th,” WEBA said in a press release. “We have asked Alexandria candidates to join us on several upcoming Thursdays to allow them to share how they would support Alexandria and Alexandria’s West End.”

The plan is to continue to host the interviews every Thursday via Zoom.

The event is free, but pre-registration is required.
