Forum set for county mayor candidates

Posted on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 4:12 am

A public forum including candidates for Lincoln County Mayor will be held Monday, June 16, at 7 p.m. at the Fayetteville Municipal Building.

Prepared questions will be asked to each of the five candidates, covering a broad set of topics relating to the management of Lincoln County. Participants will be current Mayor Peggy Bevels and challengers Jack Atchley, Bill Newman, Gwen Shelton, and David Smith.

“This free event will be an excellent opportunity for the citizens to see the candidates respond to issues relevant to the challenges in our community,” said Bruce Avilla, chairman of the Lincoln County Citizen Action Network, which is hosting the meeting.

Seating is limited to 200 attendees. For those unable to attend the forum, will be video recorded, and made available on YouTube.

Questions are being compiled for the candidates now. All residents are encouraged to submit your specific questions by email to Chairman@LincolnCountyCAN.com, or by mail to Lincoln County CAN, 301 Market Street East, Suite C, Fayetteville.
