Meet The Candidates
On Saturday, May 16, 2009, the citizens of Lumberton had the opportunity to meet the candidates that are seeking election on June 2, 2009. The candidates were given the opportunity to give their platforms, and address the public on how they would govern, if elected. The main theme of the event was unity. Everyone stated that they would be willing to work with other elected officials in order to move the city forward. In my opinion, the event was a success. I got the opportunity to hear directly from each candidate, and formulate an idea on who would best serve as an advocate for the city.
