The purpose …is to meet and greet the Herndon candidates and ask pertinent questions of their interests."
All candidates attended or sent someone to represent them. Questions ranged across the board, but many appeared to ask questions similar to those by Paul Richards of Herndon who inquired, "How are you going to spend my money? My concern Is budget, that taxes are kept low and traffic reasonable."
