    From the Campaign Trail to Council Chambers

    From providing essential services, to encouraging local business growth, to working collaboratively with state and federal agencies on local issues, city officials play an integral role in carrying out the interests of the citizens they represent.  When government functions well, the Mayor must work closely with the Mayor Pro-Tem and the five Council Members. In 2021, Wilmingtonians will again have the chance to go to the polls to decide if these officials have performed their duties well or if change is in order.

    What motivates private citizens to run for local office every two or four years? How is change affected at the local government level? What challenges do city officials face in carrying out laws, policies, and services?  

    Join us for a virtual program with former City of Wilmington officials who will discuss these topics and more on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, at 5:30 pm.

    Featuring: Hamilton Hicks (Mayor of Wilmington, 1997-1999), Spence Broadhurst (Mayor of Wilmington, 2003-2006), and Earl Sheridan (City Council Member, 2005-2017)  

    Zoom: https://lib.uncw.edu/campaign-to-council-event

    To view the display that accompanies this event, click here.  The physical display is located in Randall Library, first floor.
