The Charlottesville Democratic Party hosted a "Four Guys Constitutional Cookout" Sunday at McIntire Park.
The party was open to the public in a fun and relaxed environment. Voters could easily get to know the Democratic Constitutional Candidates.
The constitutional candidates are those running for sheriff, treasurer, commonwealth's attorney and commissioner of revenue. They are office democrats say are important decision-makers in local government.
"The constitutional offices under Virginia law perform very basic governmental functions," said Sen. Creigh Deeds (D-25th District). "Open government is where the rubber hits the road. You want the best qualified people there and Charlottesville's lucky to have these people running."
The commissioner of revenue is the only position facing opponents in the general election. Democrat Todd Divers will be running against two independents this November.
