Tuesday August 4, 2009 | Charlotte Mayoral Race

For the first time in almost 15 years, Charlotte will elect a new Mayor. The Queen City is a far different place than it was when Pat McCrory first become Mayor in 1995. A new crop of candidates is ready to take his place and our panel of experts will talk about their strengths, weaknesses, experience and their chance of taking the reins of our city’s most visible position.

  1. I had heard that the only reason Lassiter was running was because Lynn Wheeler had threatened to do so and the Republicans had to choose the lesser of two evils … any truth to that?

  2. Martin Davis seems to display a combination of shortsighted xenophobia when it comes to transit planning and statist fearmongering on the issue of crime prevention. In realty, poverty breeds crime and not the other way around. Thank you for exposing this nonsense for your audience.

  3. We clearly see how vulnerable is economic growth, resting on three legs of financial conglomerates, builders and consumers. The citizen is missing. After 2 long runs by Conservatives, no one remembers what this largest city between DC & Atlanta under a Democratic mayor would feel like! If Anthony Foxx wins this, suddenly the CD 9 will look within reach for a Democrat! Let’s continue the seasons of change; 2008-2009-2010. Above all, I like Anthony as a person, not only a guy you can have beer with but have an intelligent conversation too and believe that he believes what he is saying!
