Write-in candidates vie to be Alexandria mayor
Placeholder Image
Alexandria went from having no one showing interest in being its next mayor to having a contested mayoral race this summer. The race will be a write-in contest, meaning voters will have to write-in the candidate name on their ballot this August in order for it to count.One of those now putting his name forward is present Alexandria Mayor Bennett Armstrong who had at first indicated he did not intend to seek another term. He has since changed his mind but not in time to make it to the official ballot which closed for qualifying on April 5.
