The Arvada Peace Vigil, newly renamed Colorado Citizens for Peace, held a 7th Congressional District candidate forum today at noon. The Vigil meets every Saturday at the intersection of 52nd Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard to raise awareness for peace in Iraq.
Dave Chandler, Green Party candidate for U.S. House of Representatives for the 7th CD spoke and answered questions at the event.

Lamm sent a spokesperson, but though the Perlmutter campaign said it would send a representative, it didn't.
