Wilmington, NC (WECT)-- The five New Hanover County commission candidates gathered in our studio today for a public forum.

The candidates were asked various questions but the main topic that kept surfacing was that of the controversial titan cement plant which company officials hope to build in Castle Hayne.             

The candidates like many residents are divided on this issue.  The questions at the public forum addressed various issues including business development, taxes, and water quality.  But, the main concern that was raised is the Titan Cement Plant.

Bill Kopp says he will be satisfied if Titan received the proper permits to operate. "If Titan get permits in New Hanover County then the department water quality look over it very carefully if they get permit to water quality," says Kopp. 

Jason Thompson and Ted Davis Jr. agree they need to attract good jobs to the area that won't harm the environment.

The Titan Cement Plant will continue to be one of the main topics discussed in the final days leading up to the November fourth election.

The entire forum will be broadcast several times on Time Warner Cable and Charter Communications.
