City Council Candidates Voice Off in Forum

WILMINGTON -- The two candidates vying for a Wilmington City Council seat went head to head in a downtown forum Wednesday morning.

The Greater Wilmington Chamber of Commerce hosted a forum for J.C. Hearne and Pat Delair at the Balcony on Dock. WECT's Bob Townsend was the moderator.

The candidates talked about growth issues. Hearne felt that growth will benefit the economy of the city; while Delair said that city is growing too quickly and the infrastructure cannot keep up.

WECT-TV will air the forum in its entirety on Saturday, October 7, at 7:30 p.m.
