This Sunday’s Community Townhall Meeting – Meet and Greet!
Meet the Candidate event is Sunday September 8th from 3:00 to 5:00 at Cumberland’s Community Center located at 11 Davenport Road in Cumberland, VA. Instead of our regular meeting we will be hosting a meeting for the candidates to present their platforms.
Citizen feedback has prompted us to hold a forum for Cumberland County Board of Supervisors Candidates, Senate District 22 and House District 61 Candidates, and our Candidates for Commonwealth Attorney to speak and meet the public. Candidates attending will be given 5-10 minutes to state their platform without interruption and/or questions from the public. Those candidates interested in answering questions and speaking with the public will do so after the scheduled forum.
There will not be any proposed landfill discussions occurring during the meeting on Sunday to allow all citizens to attend, providing an opportunity to meet your candidates. All citizens are welcome to attend. Please spread the word, invite your neighbors, and bring some goodies to share.
Support the Effort
As you are aware, Cumberland County Landfill Alert is a group of Cumberland and surrounding counties residents dedicated to informing residents about the proposed County Waste / Green Ridge Mega Dump and opposing its development. We are people, just like you, who are working to protect our air, water, rural living, and safety. We have gained a lot of support and our online numbers are growing every day. Thank you!!
Some of our areas of focus is in fundraising, awareness, and spreading the word. We need more hands on helpers with events, fundraising, advertising, researchers, letter writers and more!
Our next fun event will be in October – a Shindig! We will be hosting an event that will include a meal, barbeque and hot dogs, silent auction, raffle, and much more! We need people who can help with set up, asking for donations, and more.
Please call us at 804-308-5748 or email us at NoMegaLandfill@LoveCentralVA.com if you can help out.
