Looking back: Mooresville’s 2023 candidate forum

The Scoop hosted an informative candidate forum for Mooresville’s town board on Thursday, Sept. 21. All candidates for public office attended*. We packed as much as we could into just over two hours; we chatted about growth and roads, government transparency, education and, of course, Josh’s Farmer’s Market. 

I left feeling hopeful about Mooresville’s future.
