Caravati Running for Re-election

Mayor Blake Caravati has announced that he will be running for re-election to City Council. In a press release today, Caravati specified his reasons: “I believe that my experience in a leadership role, my vision of the future, my deep conviction to personal accessibility, and my desire to make Charlottesville a great place for all citizens has prepared me for a continued role in the leadership of the City.” For those of you keeping score, that’s two seats up for election, with the announced candidates thus far being Joan Fenton (see this week’s C-Ville Weekly to learn about her) and, now, Blake Caravati. Councilor David Toscano announced yesterday that he will not be running.
