CANDIDATE'S NIGHT; REPRISE
New England is known for many traditions, probably the most cherished is the town
meeting. Sitting in at the October 29th Candidates' Night for Shore Line Editor, Mary
Korff, I was caught in the nostalgia of seeing history repeat itself in this small
southern town we now call home. Everyone came early and even with the extra chairs
provided by the "John Yancey", not everyone could find a seat. The chairman, gracious
Rachel Mangum, who in no way resembled an old New England patriarch, opened the meeting
and explained the format for the evening.
Everyone listened politely to each of the five candidates tell why he/she would
appreciate support; then the meeting was opened to audience participation and that's
when the fun began. Predictably, the questions fell into one of thpe^ categories:
sincere wish for the opinions of the candidates, a repetition of the same questions
which had been answered at previous meetings, and lightly veiled criticism disguised
as a question of someone or something not agreeable to the inquiring citizen. The
•benefit achieved for most in attendance was the satisfaction in knowing whichever three
win, they are among five citizens who are willing and able to insure the continuance
of our town, each with a special talent. We congratulate the winners and hope the
losers will try another time.
Ken Doremus, Vernon Shrum and Elsa Wentzel officiated at the polls on November
3rd. There are 801 registered voters in Pine Knoll Shores and 62% of them turned out
to vote. A very respectable showing. Winners were:
MAYOR KEN HANAN
They will be sworn in at the December Conmissioner's meeting on December 8th.
We hope you will be there for the ceremony.
