2019 Boone Town Council Candidate Podcast Series

Posted By: David Jackson Chamber News,

The Boone Area Chamber of Commerce presents a special podcast series that features each of the four candidates on the 2019 ballot for Boone Town Council.

Due to scheduling issues with the candidates and other technical factors, the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce was forced to forgo a public forum this year. Instead, the four candidates were interviewed individually the week of October 7th and each asked the same questions, which were prepared by the Chamber's Government Relations Committee.

The following links contain unedited responses to each question. Click on the candidate's name to listen:

Loretta Clawson (I) 

Dustin Hicks

Nancy LaPlaca

Virginia Roseman
