Mayor Saffo http://whqr.org en Candidate Profile: Skip Watkins, Wilmington City Council http://whqr.org/post/candidate-profile-skip-watkins-wilmington-city-council <p>Skip Watkins says he&rsquo;s dreamed of serving in public office his whole life. A father, financial advisor and longtime volunteer with the Cape Fear Festival and Expo and the Azalea Festival, Watkins cites frustration over Wilmington City Council&rsquo;s recent efforts to acquire a minor-league baseball stadium as the catalyst that ultimately spurred him to run for a seat on the Council. If elected, Skip Watkins hopes to provide the City with a dose of what he describes as &ldquo;fiscal guidance.&rdquo;</p> Thu, 17 Oct 2013 09:00:00 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 44630 at http://whqr.org Candidate Profile: Skip Watkins, Wilmington City Council Baseball on the Cape Fear River? http://whqr.org/post/baseball-cape-fear-river-0 <p> Mon, 06 Aug 2012 20:00:00 +0000 Andrew Jarachovic 22240 at http://whqr.org Baseball on the Cape Fear River?
