Wake Forest Gazette, August 2, 2017 — Two of the five candidates for two seats on the Wake Forest Board of Commissioners were not able to submit their answers to some questions from the Gazette but have sent them in this week. . .

Bridget Wall-Lennon said, “I enjoy Wake Forest and all that it has to offer. I am running for town commissioner because I believe my 20 years of experience in the public sector, coupled with my passion for servant leadership can be utilized to expound the successes already accomplished by the town board and administrators.”  She added, “Some of the biggest issues, but that definitely are not insurmountable, are ensuring that we have steady economic development, job creation and workforce development, affordable housing and transportation. I believe that it is important that our law enforcement officers, fire fighters and town administrators have the resources and training they need to effectively serve, protect and meet the needs of our community. I applaud the growth and economic development that our town has undergone, but I believe it is critically important that in our efforts all communities are included and have a voice at the table.”  Read the full story.
