Troutman Council candidates forum set for Thursday

Posted at 3:56 PM on Oct 15, 2017



To inform voters prior to the November 7 municipal election, Statesville Free News will host a candidates forum at Troutman Town Hall on Thursday, October 19.

Paul Bryant, Paul Henkel, Curt Rogers and Sally Williams are vying for three at-large seats on Troutman Town Council.

The forum will begin at 7 p.m. and last approximately 90 minutes. It will be broadcast on Facebook Live.

During the forum, each candidate will be given two minutes to present an opening statement at the beginning of the forum and two minutes each for a closing statement to end the event.

This forum is not a debate but an opportunity to learn candidates’ thoughts on issues pertinent to the Troutman community.

Each candidate will have the opportunity to answer questions posed by a moderator about transportation, taxes, budgeting, economic development, health, public safety, infrastructure, and managing growth. Candidates may also be asked about their governing philosophy and vision for Troutman.
