Northam, Gillespie Sound Off at Clean Water Forum

September 8, 2017 · 0 minute read

On Wednesday, the James River Association and Chesapeake Bay Foundation co-hosted a Clean Water Forum with the candidates in the race to be Virginia’s next governor. Ed Gillespie and Lt. Governor Ralph Northam discussed issues ranging from the restoration of Virginia’s waterways and environmental education, to coal ash and river access.

It wasn’t a debate, technically. The candidates took the stage separately and responded to questions. The Times-Dispatch’s Robert Zullo estimated the crowd to be about 235 and described the candidates’ views as not having much “daylight” between them.
