SALISBURY — City Council will not meet Tuesday due to the election.

The council will meet only once this month, at 4 p.m. Nov. 19.

All five incumbents — Mayor Paul Woodson, Mayor Pro Tem Maggie Blackwell and council members Karen Alexander, Pete Kennedy and Brian Miller — are running for re-election against four challengers, including William Peoples, Rick Honeycutt and Blake Jarman. Challenger Dale Stephens is apparently still in the race but has not campaigned or responded to questions from the Post.

Challenger Tom Speaks withdrew from the election, but his name will still appear on the ballot.

Polls open at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Salisbury residents will have until 7:30 p.m. to choose their next City Council.
