New Hanover Co. Commission candidates face off in forum


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Six candidates running for three seats on the New Hanover County Commission met Tuesday night at WHQR downtown to voice their views on questions presented by Tricia Vance from the StarNews and Vicky Janowski of the Greater Wilmington Business Journal.

The public was also invited to e-mail questions or present them in person. WHQR news director Rachel Lewis Hilburn was the moderator.

"So many of our listeners are very interested in the three Es, which are education, the environment and the economy," Hilburn explained. "This particular event is something that we have gotten a lot of e-mail questions in advance. We had so much interest the room was filled to overflowing."

WHQR is just getting started. It has a full slate of forums throughout the month of October.
