Democratic Labor Commissioner candidates to debate Thursday

The candidates in the Democratic runoff for Labor Commissioner will debate at the Thursday-night meeting of the Rowan County Democratic Party. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room at the Cohen Administration Building, 130 W. Innes said.
The public is invited to hear the candidates and pose questions.
In the May 6 Democratic primary, Mary Fant Donnan came in first, followed closely by John C. Brooks. None of the four candidates running received the 40 percent of the vote necessary to avoid a runoff. Brooks has requested a runoff election, which will be held Tuesday, June 24.
Donnan, a graduate of Davidson College and the University of Adelaide in Australia, is a program officer for the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation in Winston-Salem and a former director of research and policy at the N.C. Department of Labor.
Brooks, a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Chicago, works in the field of labor law. He served as Labor Commissioner from 1977 to 1993.
