Several towns and cities will vote to elect leadership in their communities Nov. 8. Kinston, however, will vote on an issue of how to lead their city.
A referendum is scheduled to be on the ballot in Kinston on election day. The group Citizens For Progress is supporting a measure to give the mayor of Kinston veto power over the city council.
The mayor currently only votes in the case of a tie, and the group says the office should "have the tools necessary to provide checks and balances on the actions taken by the council."
The city council could vote to override the mayor's veto if four of the five council members vote to do so.
