Alexandria Names New Town Crier

New Town CrierOyez! Oyez! The City of Alexandria has selected Benjamin Fiore-Walker (right) as its new town crier, following tryouts and interviews last week. Fiore-Walker was one of a dozen candidates who competed in a “cry off” on Wednesday, September 7 before panelists representing Alexandria tourism, historic resources, special events and the City government, who evaluated the candidates for their voice strength and clarity, deportment, verbal and nonverbal communication, and interest in Alexandria. The public also had the opportunity to weigh in by voting for their favorites online.

A resident of Alexandria, Fiore-Walker has experience working with the public, appearing in period costume, volunteering at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum and promoting history as a tour guide. He will make his first official appearance as town crier at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, September 27.
