Boone Town Council candidates Rob Taylor and Kevin Freeman
are holding a press conference tonight to formally announce that they are no
longer running for office.
The loft section of the restaurant has been reserved
from 7:30 to 9 p.m., and the announcement is expected at 8 p.m. The two are
expected to also announce their endorsements of incumbent Mayor Loretta
Clawson, incumbent Council candidates Lynne Mason and Bunk Spann, and Council
candidate Liz Aycock. Taylor said several candidates should be present for the
announcement. The conference was originally scheduled for Tuesday at Boone
Saloon, but extenuating circumstances forced the candidates to reschedule.
Taylor does not expect these plans to change.
