FAIRFAX, Va. – Mark Gibson, independent candidate for Virginia’s 11th Congressional District, says he’s eager to engage the other candidates and media in a forum on Wednesday, September 12 at 8 p.m. televised by Reston Community Television, RCTV28 on Comcast. But, Gibson said, “I’m disappointed that the incumbent has declined.”

Gibson will appear along with Republican candidate Chris Perkins and Green Party candidate Joe Galdo. Moderated by Colin Mills, President of the Reston Citizens Association, and John Lovaas, host of RCTV28’s Reston Impact, journalists from three media outlets serving Reston – The Connection, Fairfax Times, and Patch.com – will pose questions to the candidates.

Notably absent is the incumbent, Gerry Connolly. The two-term Democrat declined participation, though he benefited from inclusion of Democrat-dominated Reston in Congressional redistricting following the 2010 Census.

Gibson will also participate in other upcoming forums, including:

Delta Sigma Theta / NAACP on Sat Sep 15 at 830am in Manassas

Falls Church Chamber / Greater Merrifield Business Association on Tue Sep 18 at Noon

South County HS Student Forum on Fri Oct 5 at 930am in Lorton

Korean Coalition for Political Participation on Sat Oct 6 at 6pm in Merrifield
