Cary, NC- This Wednesday, September 14, the Town of Cary sponsors the  Cary Community Candidate Forum for all candidates vying for municipal seats in the upcoming Oct 11 election.

The forum takes place in Cary’s Town Council Chambers in Town Hall, located at 316 N. Academy Street in Downtown Cary. Come to the debates on Wednesday (they’re free, of course) and familiarize yourself with the issues and the candidates who will be appearing on the ballot.

Questions have already been submitted, so audience members who attend may listen, but not participate.
