New Bern Aldermen
Purpose: To provide an opportunity for citizens of New Bern to meet the candidates running for city office in an informal setting, and hear them speak on the issues that the candidates identify as most important for the good of the city. The event is free and open to the public.
Program: All Mayoral candidates will be afforded eight minutes to speak to the group, and that conversation, hosted by Henry Hinton, will air live on “Talk of the Town” 94.1, WNBU. After all candidates for Mayor have had an opportunity to speak, candidates for Alderman will be given three minutes each. Candidates for Ward 1 will go first, followed by candidates for Ward 2, and so on until all candidates in attendance have spoken.
Date: Tuesday, September 17, 2013 would place this event on the calendar two days before early voting opens.
Time: WNBU will conduct the “Meet the Candidates” program from 6 PM until 8 PM, all of which will be open to the public and broadcast live on 94.1 WNBU. Meet and greets start at 5:30pm before the program begins.
Venue: The ballroom at Doubletree by Hilton will be used to host the event. Much of the room will be set up auditorium style facing the stage area, so that those in attendance may sit and listen to all the candidates. The back of the room will be open and the foyer outside the ballroom may be used by candidates and citizens to meet and greet throughout the evening.
