Walters running for county commissioner

Winston-Salem’s Ralf Walters, a Republican, is one of ten candidates running for one of three Forsyth County Commissioners District B seats and he wants your vote and support. “I am running for Forsyth County commissioner because it’s time for fresh ideas and new leadership. Serving on the County Board shouldn’t be a job for life. Two incumbents have served for decades. One was first elected in 1980, and the other 1998. Forsyth County’s annual budget is $569 million. If it were a private corporation, it would hire the best. After attending several County Board meetings and witnessing their difficulties in understanding the proceedings or articulating the few questions they seldom ask before making important and costly decisions, I felt a responsibility, if not a call to duty, to run for this important office,” said Walters

Dog adoption event

On January 21, Gypsy Road Brewing Company is hosting an adoption event with the Haley Graves Foundation. The event is from 1pm to 4pm.
The Haley Graves Foundation will bring their adoptable pups so they can meet their potential owners.

These adoption events give people an opportunity to meet and connect with the dogs. At the event, people can come and get to know the dogs. They will also have a chance to talk to the volunteers at the Haley Graves Foundation and ask questions about adoption and fostering. For more, see the Thursday, January 11, 2024 edition.

Bond referendum

Some of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system projects agreed to by the voters in the 2016 bond referendum have been completed, some of them have not, some of them have been cancelled and some of them are on hold. There are a variety of reasons for this, not the least of which is the skyrocketing cost of construction in recent years. Simply put, the money from the $350 million bond referendum doesn’t go nearly as far in 2024 as it would have in 2016. For more, see the Thursday, January 11, 2024 edition.
