A “round robin” formatted Meet the Candidates forum will be
held tomorrow night at the Watauga County Courthouse.
Candidates for Boone
Mayor and Boone Town Council will be present to discuss the issues- and answer
questions provided by community citizens. If Appalachian State University’s
Monday forum was any indication, it should be an interesting evening. At
Monday’s forum, so called “progressive candidates” like incumbent Mayor Loretta
Clawson, were on the offensive- responding to radio and print ads submitted by
new Political Action Committee, Citizens for Change. Monday’s table turned into
a battle between the Progressives and the PAC- setting the stage for what
should be a heated forum tomorrow night.
Can’t make it to the courthouse? We’ll be broadcasting the
program live from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on WATA and WXIT.
The forum is organized by the Boone Area Chamber of
The municipal election is October 9.
