Subject: C.O.V.E. Presents "Thursdays with the Candidates"
COalition for Voter Empowerment
Invites you to participate in
"Thursdays with the Candidates"
How will the C.O.V.E Forum be different from other forums?
•The C.O.V.E. Forum is NOT a debate. . .
•The C.O.V.E Forum format puts you, the resident, in the driver's seat because
◦It will be the candidates' job interview with you, the voter;
◦The candidates don't fight each other, they answer your questions;
◦The questions from the moderator are designed to address issues not only of importance to Ward 5 as a whole, but specifically, to residents in the western neighborhoods of Ward 5;
◦You will be up-front and personal with the candidate, one-on-one.

COMING TONIGHT... March 29th
Meet Ron Magnus @ 7:00 p.m.
The gospel music industry, especially those in DC, are very familiar with Attorney Ron L. Magnus who has long been a champion of gospel music and the gospel community. Now, he is taking steps to affect change within his community. He is running under the banner of "The Leadership Ward 5 Deserves." Ron Magnus has stated that he has chosen to run in order to heal the ward and bring unity to the ward in a time of hurt, disappointment and frustration many feel toward City Hall.
Meet Ruth Marshall @ 8:00 p.m.
"Our Ward faces some challenging issues--some that mirror the city-at-large and others that are unique to us. With massive land areas and unused warehouse spaces, Ward 5 attracts industries and businesses generally not located in other areas of the District. Policies governing industries located in Ward 5 and the current zoning laws need to be carefully reviewed, and I will do that on the City Council. "
Ruth Marshall is Director of Administration for Premier Consultants International, Inc., a construction services firm, with over 25 years of experience in administration, banking, real estate development, construction, and work in the community.
