Democratic Charlottesville City Council hopefuls are taking up issues in the Belmont neighborhood.

The five Democratic candidates vying for a seat on council discussed issues specific to the Belmont-Carlton area Monday night.  Major concerns ranged from housing issues to how candidates will vote on council.  How candidates plan to interact with the LGBT community was also discussed.

"It's very important for the candidates to come to the neighborhoods. After all, we're the citizens andthe first concerns come out of the neighborhoods and the neighborhood associations. So they can hear firsthand what the voters are thinking about," said Greg Jackson, president of the Belmont-Carlton Neighborhood Association.

The two candidates for Charlottesville commonwealth's attorney also participated in the forum.
