Return of the Electeds: Perspectives, Lessons and Legends
Agenda Alexandria is convening an historic assembly of former City Council members on Monday, Oct. 22. Join us at the Lyceum in Old Town.
At 7:15 pm, we’ll talk to the former electeds about their time in office and the issues they dealt with back in the day. We’ll also ask them about how they would handle things if they were in office today. Participants include:
Bill Euille, who was first elected in 1994 and served 21 years on the council (13 years as mayor)
Jim Moran, who was first elected in 1979 and served 10 years on the council (five years as mayor)
Wiley Mitchell, who was first elected in 1967 and served nine years on the council

Our program starts at 7:15 pm. Come as early at 6:45 for a pre-program reception and time to view Alexandria’s history museum, where you’ll be able to see some priceless artifacts from the city’s history.
