Henrico Citizen: Brookland, Varina Candidates Outline Plans

The topic of education took center stage during a Henrico candidate forum Monday night at the Henrico Theatre, during which nine candidates for the Henrico Board of Supervisors and School Board from the Brookland and Varina districts laid out their philosophies before a crowd of about 110 people.

The six School Board candidates – four from Varina, two from Brookland – each vowed to improve teacher pay, necessary resources for schools and equity.

The forum was the first of three involving Henrico races hosted by ChamberRVA. It was moderated by University of Richmond political science professor Dan Palazzolo.
