With four seats on Virginia Beach City Council up for grabs on Nov. 8, not to mention the mayor’s office, Tidewater Community College has invited the candidates over for a chat about the issues.

Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for two-year-college students, is sponsoring a free candidate’s forum at the Virginia Beach campus on Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 6-8 p.m., according to a release. The event, which is open to students, faculty, staff and the public, will be moderated by Joel Rubin, president of Rubin Communications Group.

“The Psi Upsilon chapter of Phi Theta Kappa believes it is our civic duty to assist in engagement with elected officials in our community,” Psi Upsilon President Nikki Duncan-Talley said in the release. “Part of our responsibility includes educating our community and our peers about who and what will be on the ballot.”

Before the forum, there will be a meet-and-greet with candidates from 5-6 p.m. in the student center, room K320.
