FOR KNIGHTDALE TOWN COUNCIL
"I strongly endorse Ben McDonald as a candidate for Knightdale Town Council. Ben has served on the Land Use and Review Board (LURB) for the Town of Knightdale and demonstrated great leadership as Chairman. He has an admirable volunteer record that demonstrates commitment to community and he is also a strong supporter of education initiatives. He is well respected and is known as a team player but more importantly, he knows how to bring people together. I respect his reliability, work ethics and willingness to work hard for the citizens of Knightdale. Vote Ben McDonald on November 5th, 2019."
