Candidate forum set for Sept. 29

·1 min read

Sep. 14—The Mountaineer is hosting a candidate forum Sept. 29 to allow a chance for all candidates seeking local office to share their views with the public.

The forum will start at 6 p.m. in the Historic Courthouse courtroom with the candidates in the 13 unopposed races speaking for 2 minutes about their candidacy, the office they hold and their plans for the future.

Following that, there will be forums for those involved in a contested race where candidates introduce themselves and then respond to four questions each.

Readers are invited to submit questions to be considered for the following races — sheriff, county commissioner, N.C. Senate, N.C. House, school board, tax collector and 11th Congressional District.

Email questions to vhyatt@themountaineer.

As in past years, the candidate forum will be broadcast on the government access channels and available on The Mountaineer's social website and social media pages.
