Candidates tackle economy issues

September 21, 2010

Mitchell Setzer, candidate for the 89th District
of the North Carolina House, speaks
with Sandra Lane and Brenda Sopala, both of Conover,
after Tuesday's candidate forum
at St. John's Lutheran Church in Conover.

Catawba County needs support and guidance amidst shrinking budgets and expanding unemployment, and candidates for office say they're the guidance citizens need.

Local candidates for Catawba County Board of Education, District Attorney, Catawba County Sheriff, North Carolina Senate and the North Carolina House of Representatives spoke with voters Tuesday during an election forum at St. John's Lutheran Church in Conover.

Remaining candidates for local offices, including state and local judges, Catawba County Commissioners and Soil and Water Conservation District supervisors, will have another forum Sept. 28.

Candidates at Tuesday's forum were given five minutes to introduce themselves and express their reasons for seeking election, the foundations and beliefs they expect to use when making a decision and the most challenging issue facing their office.
