Very unmayor-like: Crawford bows out of Pittsboro candidates' forum

Posted by on Wed, Oct 7, 2009 at 9:16 AM

Rebekah Cowell reports that Pittsboro mayoral challenger Bill Crawford will not attend tonight's candidates' forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters. Crawford, who is challenging incumbent Randy Voller, informed Joyce Colaiace, president of the LWV's Chatham County Unit, by email yesterday.

The forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Superior Court House in Pittsboro.

LWV sent its candidates' invitations more than a month ago, and received a confirmation from Crawford that he would attend.

Colaiace says it is shocking to have a candidate in a two-person race withdraw shortly before a candidates' forum.

“Since there are only two candidates, it's really too bad that there can't be debate on their opposing opinions for the voters who attend the forum,” said Colaiace.

Crawford has not returned the Indy's calls seeking comment.

The forum will continue with Voller answering prepared questions from the LWV, followed by questions from the audience. The forum will also include commissioner candidates Andrew Allden, Pamela Baldwin and Michael Fiocco, vying for two open seats on the Town Board.
