Student safety and retention of young professionals in Greenville were themes each candidate discussed at the forum hosted by East Carolina University’s Student Government Association on Monday evening.

The forum, which attracted about 40 students, candidates and supporters, was open to all Greenville municipal candidates. The focus was on students and what City Council candidates plan to accomplish in the name of student well-being.

Incumbent Mayor Allen Thomas, District 3 challenger Katherine Wetherington and District 5 candidates did not attend. Wetherington sent a representative to give a statement on her behalf.
