On Tuesday, September 25, 2012, the Cape Fear Economic Development Council produced a candidates' forum, in the WHQR MC Erny Gallery, with a focus on economic issues facing New Hanover County. All six candidates for the three open seats on the Board of Commissioners participated. Julie Martin, producer, organizer, and mistress of ceremonies introduced the evening by contextualizing the current state of the economy.
