This year’s Durham election could remake the city’s governing body, with a new mayor on the way and three at-large council seats up for grabs.
Many votes today run along 4-3 lines, meaning the new leaders could reshape how the Bull City grows and spends its tax dollars.
To help you get to know the 20 people running, we invited people from across the city to ask their own questions.
Here’s how the candidates explained their visions. (Note: We are posting responses from the at-large City Council candidates Thursday afternoon and Friday; please return for active links.)
