North Carolina: Morganton mayor facing recall of utilities

Morganton Mayor Mel Cohen (who has been in office for 28 years) is facing a recall threat due to the increase in the deposit on utilities. Petitioner needs 25% of turnout. Can't remember any North Carolina city holding a recall.

  2. This particular city holds its municipal elections in October rather than November. Research this to be sure, but I think Morganton is the only city in NC to hold elections on a day other than the Tues after the first Mon in Nov.
