Elect 2012: Candidate forum Tuesday night

Local candidates involved in the July 17 second primary will field questions during a candidate forum 6 p.m. Tuesday at Carson High School near China Grove.

Republicans Richard Hudson and Scott Keadle will be featured in one portion of the forum. They are vying for the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat Larry Kissell’s bid to be re-elected as North Carolina’s 8th District representative in the U.S. House.
Six candidates for the Rowan County Board of Commissioners will be in the other portion of the forum. They include Republicans Gus Andrews, Gene Miller, Mike Caskey and Craig Pierce, all vying for two spots. Democrat candidates are Corey Hill and Ralph Walton, vying for one spot.
