WENDELL — Candidates running for the Wendell Board of Commissioners will have the opportunity to share their views and answer questions at a public forum next Tuesday at GrillBillies Barbecue.

 The Wake Weekly is hosting the event, starting at 6 p.m. on Oct. 12.

“We are excited to bring Wendell voters this opportunity to learn more about and meet the candidates looking to represent the community on the town’s Board of Commissioners,” said Shawn Taylor, editor of The Wake Weekly.

Each candidate will have an opportunity to introduce themselves before answering questions about the economy, health, public safety and other local issues. Questions will also be accepted from the audience.

After the conclusion, candidates and voters can mingle at GrillBillies, 36 N. Pine St.

There are three open seats on the board. Commissioners Jason Joyner and Jon Lutz are running for re-election. Mayor Pro Tem John Boyette is not. Challengers are Deans Eatman, Michael Firstbrook, Braxton Davis Honeycutt, Josh Sledge and Allison Yeargin.
