Re-elect Mel Cohen

After 26 years as Mayor I can say without a doubt I love this city more than anything except my family.

I have developed strong contacts throughout the state in city councils, county governments and among state officials. Through these contacts and my years of service Morganton receives the recognition and support that our great city deserves.

I have the stamina, knowledge, experience and the passion to continue to serve Morganton as Mayor. I consider it a privilege to serve as your Mayor and I respect every aspect of that responsibility.
