District Attorney Candidates Forum for 24th District Held April 28 at Watauga County Courthouse

 April 9, 2014. The Watauga County DART/SART and the Watauga County Bar Association are hosting a District Attorney Candidates’ Forum for the Avery, Madison, Mitchell, Watauga and Yancey County communities in the 24th Prosecutorial District, local attorneys and the Watauga County DART/SART members.

The event is scheduled for Monday, April 28, in the large Superior Court Room in the Watauga County Court House, located at 842 West King Street in downtown Boone from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The doors open at 5:00 p.m. Questions are being accepted from community members, local attorneys and members of the DART/SART and will be distributed to the candidates a week prior to the event.

Since the only candidates for DA are Republicans, the primary essentially calls the race. Candidates are Assistant District Attorney Britt Springer of Boone, Nathan Miller of Boone and Seth Banks of Burnsville.
