I attended the Raleigh City Council candidate forum last night and decided to be a citizen and not a blogger. Transit dominated the questions from the audience and I believe it will continue to be that way from here on out. MyNC has some videos as well as some other information about the candidates posted here.

Regardless of who is going to win, Raleigh will have to consider shifting to a full-time City Council. Sure, it will be more expensive, but it will also be good to get a city leadership that is fully dedicated to moving Raleigh forward.
Good luck to all candidates and may the best win.
Thanks for the post Leo. It is critically important that voters think about growth issues and find out where the candidates stand – and then take that knowledge to the polls on October 6th! RTN Channel 10 is airing this candidate forum in its entirety – you can find the RTN schedule and more information about the candidates and key local issues like water supply, transit and how to pay for growth at http://www.wakeupwakecounty.com.
