CAPE FEAR MEMORIAL BRIDGE: Updates, resources, and context

Coming up on The Newsroom: Mayoral candidates for Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach

We round out our month-long elections coverage with a look at the races for mayor in New Hanover County's beach towns.

On the next edition of The Newsroom, we’re focusing on the mayoral races in Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach

We’ll sit down with incumbent Darryl Mills and challenger Greg Buscemi from Wrightsville Beach, and councilman Lynn Barbee and former mayor Dan Wilcox in Carolina Beach. We’ll ask them about the parking, beach renourishment, maintaining staff, and dealing with the mounting pressures of growth and development.

It's worth noting that the race for two commissioner seats and mayor in Kure Beach is uncontested, with three incumbents running unopposed; likewise, the race for two alderman positions in Wrightsville Beach has two incumbents running unopposed.

Carolina Beach, on the other hand, has a broad field of candidates for running for town council. You can find WHQR reporter Rachel Keith's interviews with those candidates here: 2021 Elections: Town of Carolina Beach Council
