BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — Mayoral candidates took the stage and answered questions from both a moderator and the public at the Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday.
This free event allows the people of Bentonville to hear from the candidates who will be running against each other this midterm election.
One woman from Bentonville said there’s a number of hot button issues that these candidates touched on.
“I think they covered a wide range of interest, ranging from affordability of housing, to infrastructure, to really what each candidate considers their priorities for the city,” said Nancy Leake, who lives in Bentonville.
There are five people running for Bentonville mayor: Jim Webb, Stephanie Orman, Terry Shannon, John Skaggs and Charlie Turner.
