Charlottesville Democrats hosted a picnic in McIntire Park.
The "Four Guys Constitutional Cookout" drew party faithful and voters. Candidates campaigning for city council and commissioner of revenue say they will spend the weeks up to Election Day meeting potential voters and spreading the word about their goals for Charlottesville.
"[I'm] Just trying to be out and be visible, it is a contested election so I need to make sure that folks are aware of who I am and can get in touch with me if they need to," said Todd Divers, candidate for City Commissioner of Revenue.
"From here to Election Day it will be door to door, it will be talking to the voters and seeing what they're concerns are and making sure that if I am successful, I'll hit the ground running," Bob Fenwick, Democratic candidate for Charlottesville City Council, said.
Both candidates are running in contested races. Election Day is November 5.
