WILMINGTON -- Wilmington's mayoral candidates met with students, faculty and staff at UNCW Thursday. A campaign election class hosted the event and invited faculty and staff to get to know Mayor Bill Saffo, Justin LaNasa and Harper Peterson, all running for Wilmington's mayor. Those who attended had the opportunity to ask the candidates questions and find out more about their backgrounds in a relaxed atmosphere. UNCW junior Kandis Weeks said, "We're really trying to give the staff here on UNCW's campus, it's for faculty and staff, and also we're trying to get students more involved to get them involved in the political process and get them involved about voting this year." You'll have another chance to question the mayoral and city council candidates next Friday night. NewsChannel 3 will co-sponsor a forum at the Scottish Rite Temple.
