Annual Candidates’ Forum

The Candidate’s Forum held in New Neighborhood around election time has now become a fall tradition. The forum will be co-sponsored by, the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce, and St. Alban’s Square Neighborhood Association. Races this year for seats on the Davidson Town Board will bring forth many new faces and new opinions. Don’t miss an opportunity to be informed of the issues and views on your future. (Mecklenburg County School Board candidates will be invited to the forum, but will not be given time to speak formally. The public may ask questions following the meeting in the church atrium.)

As with past candidate forums, the format will include a brief opening by each candidate followed by a moderated question and answer session, including questions from the floor. If you have advance questions of general interest, please forward these to Bill McCoy at 704.987.1877 or at

Please join this exciting event on Tuesday, October 18, at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Alban’s Church. The meeting will be open to other neighborhoods and the Lake Norman community and, with increased area publicity, we expect a large turnout.

Special thanks go to Bill McCoy and Sherman Kahn of the neighborhood, to David Boraks of, and to Bill Russell of the Lake Norman Chamber for their efforts in making this happen.

Neighborhood Dinner Group

Due to conflict with the event from Political Forum on October 18, we will not have any Neighborhood Dinner Group event in the month of October. We plan to go to Dresslers on November 15.
