A 1st Congressional District candidates’ debate will be held at 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Dar Al Noor Islamic Community Center, 5404 Hoadly Road, Manassas.

The Prince William Area League of Women Voters and the Committee of 100 are co-sponsoring the event, moderated by Mark Segraves. The candidates include Republican candidate Rob Wittman, Democratic candidate Matt Rowe and Independent candidate Glenda Gail Parker.

RSVP to attend by emailing Jessie Barringer at msjwnb@gmail.com.

We need to ask for a repeat next week, though, to include two edits.  It is very important to state that it is a joint-sponsored event -- the League and the Committee of 100.  It is definitely a joint effort so the notice needs to include the C100 -- the two groups are helping each other.

The notice also says that the League of Women Voters will "put on the event, featuring moderator Mark Segraves."  The debate is not intended to feature Mark Segraves. I hope the editor will change that.  The event features the debate of the candidates.
