Thorny Topics Raised at Boone Council Forum PDF Print

An overflow crowd spilled out of the Boone Town Council chamber last night, there to see and hear the candidates for Mayor and Town Council. Ten candidates--with only two incumbents--are seeking the four open seats; four for mayor, six for the three open seats on the town council. There were some moments of agreement, but even more moments of disagreement and some throny issues, especially between Mark Templeton, whose family business has had a number of issues with the town, and mayoral candidate Andy Ball.  Over the next week or so, we'll be taking individual issues from the Boone Chamber forum and airing various comments on our newscasts, with more complete coverage on WATA. We will be sure to air comments from each candidate.  We'll also post audio from the forum to our soundcloud account, and provide a link as that is accomplished.
