Snook leads Democrats seeking spot on November Council ballot

There are five Democrats in the primary race to be held on June 20 but only four of them filed reports electronically. The one who didn’t is Bob Fenwick, who filed his statement of organization on paper in the Charlottesville Registrar’s office. More reporting is needed. (no campaign website)
