Northam, Gillespie Sound Off at Clean Water Forum

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.

If you missed the event or this is the first you’re hearing about it, you’re in luck. You can watch it in its entirety by clicking here. Want to know what our next governor thinks about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, cleaning up coal ash, sea-level rise and others issues? Give it a look.

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
