The seven candidates on Fredericksburg’s May 3 general election ballot will be at The Foundry, 2324 Plank Rd., on Monday, April 18, 2016, to discuss technology.

The event, hosted by FredXchange (FredX), is open to the public, although seating is limited. It will also be live-streamed online at Oddbox TV.

The program schedule is:
6 p.m.. Fredericksburg’s three school board at-large candidates will discuss tech in our schools. The candidates are:
Jarvis E. Bailey
Jannan W. Holmes
Charlotte G. Horne

6:45 p.m. The two council members running uncontested races will share their ideas and philosophies about technology in government. They are:
Kerry P. Devine
Matthew J. Kelly

7 p.m. Fredericksburg’s two mayoral candidates will debate a variety of technology-related topics. The candidates are:
Richard M. Dynes
Mary Katherine Greenlaw

If you have have a question you’d like to pose to the candidates, send it to FredXchange at [email protected].

“FredX wants to keep some of the 50,000+ technology-savvy commuters off I-95 and working here, close to their families, by creating a high-tech culture in the Fredericksburg region,” said FredXchange President Matt Norris. “As a three-year old non-profit focused on launching an entrepreneurial ecosystem in the region, we believed a forum focused on the topic of ‘Technology in the ‘Burg’ would make for an interesting and relevant event.”

To reserve tickets, visit Fredericksburg Mayoral and School Board Debate – Technology in the ‘Burg. There are 80 tickets available, and a waiting list will be established, Norris said.

The Foundry, launched by FredXchange in the fall of 2015, is the area’s only co-working space offering individuals and companies daily and month-to-month memberships for working in a collaborative environment.
