Candidates give opinions on future of Havelock at forum

Published: Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at 04:38 PM.

Candidates for the two commissioner seats — incumbent Jim Stuart, George Corbin, Matthew “Sugarbear” Jones, Peter Van Vliet and Brenda Wilson — had different views. Van Vliet and Jones both questioned the approval of construction.

“No, it’s not an effective use, but it’s been set aside in the budget,” said Van Vliet. “I don’t want to see the city go into any further indebtedness.”

Jones agreed with Van Vliet. “I don’t, but it’s already been started,” he said. “We need to complete it. We need to finish it up.”

Wilson, Stuart and Corbin agreed that the project was needed.

“It’s needed, it’s time and we’re going forward with it,” Wilson said. “Now’s the time.”

Stuart said the current substructure of the building was “falling down,” and that the board made the right decision.

“I think that it’s something we can all be proud of,” he said. “It didn’t happen overnight. We put a lot of thought into it.”
