Cites Progress on Dix Park and Union Station
Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane is asking citizens to support her for a third term, citing progress made on Dix Park, Union Station, and Raleigh’s growing economy during her four years in office. Joined by family and friends, Mayor McFarlane officially filed for reelection on Thursday, July 9 2015 at the Wake County Board of Elections.
“It has been an honor serving as Raleigh’s Mayor these past four years. Everyday I’m inspired by the passion and love our citizens have for our great city. We did not become the best place to live and work in America by accident. It took vision and leadership from our entire community, and I’m grateful for the trust citizens have placed in me to continue that tradition,” Mayor McFarlane said.
McFarlane continued, “from acquiring Dix Park, to the groundbreaking of a new Union Station, to the success of the International Bluegrass Music Association, Raleigh has seen much progress these last two years, but there is more to be done. Finishing the implementation our new Unified Development Ordinance, moving forward on transit, and affordable housing are goals for my next term.”
