North Raleigh residents have seen their mailboxes stuffed in recent weeks with advertisements from the two District A City Council candidates, Randy Stagner and Wayne Maiorano.
Both sides are distributing attack ads, and like most political campaigns, the accusations aren’t entirely accurate.
Here’s a look at what the candidates are saying about each other and how the claims hold up.
“When I talk about creating a vision and plan for managing growth, I am talking concrete plans for what we want to become as a city and how are we going to get there,” Maiorano wrote in an email. “It only just starts with the Comp Plan; it does not end there.”
“A group of Democrats and independents recruited me to run against Mr. Stagner,” he said. “It has never been about party or politics for me.”
