“If you want to prove to the citizens of District 4 that you are truly a better choice, then let’s have a one-on-one debate and discuss the real issues affecting the citizens I serve,” said Bell in a letter printed in the Forsyth County News. “Let’s talk openly about banking, membranes, foundations and land sales. Let’s talk about public safety, budgets, economic development, staffing, service delivery, water supply, transportation, parks & recreation, and experience. Let’s especially talk about ethics. “
“I will be ready to debate you or debate an empty podium,” said Bell. “The choice is yours, but the citizens of this county, and especially District 4, deserve this opportunity.
