The League of Women Voters hosted a forum for candidates in the 2015 Municipal elections in Franklin, NC. Five of the six Alderman candidates showed up. Susan Irvin read a statement from Joe Collins, who had a previous engagement and could not attend the forum. Mayor Bob Scott, who is running unopposed, also made a brief statement.
The full forum has been embedded below so you can see and hear what the candidates said without filtering through a reporter or editor.
