Staff report
KANNAPOLIS ó Councilman Gene McCombs filed today for re-election to the Kannapolis City Council.
In a prepared statement, McCombs said he was seeking a second term because, “I am committed to continue the transformation of Kannapolis to a world-class biotechnical center, increase employment opportunities and maintain our quality of life.”

McCombs served as city manager for Lumberton and Staunton, Va., and was the first Kannapolis city manager from 1985 until his retirement in 1997.
McCombs, according to the statement, supports a strong program of economic development and the efficient delivery of governmental services without increasing taxes.
