Conway Candidate Charged on Eve of Election

by Tony on April 9, 2019

The day before the Town election in Conway, municipal budget committee member Greydon Turner was charged with felony manufacturing marijuana. Turner was the second individual to be arrested in the case involving a mobile home at 18 Colbath Street that was converted to facilitate the manufacturing of marijuana. Daniel Davis was first charged after being found on scene as police raided the mobile home. The Conway Daily Sun reports Turner as saying he still feels capable of serving the needs of the community on the planning board but says that will ultimately be up to the voters. Town elections are going on today from 8am to 7pm.

Town elections are today in Conway. The ballot features elections of School Board members, Town Officials, as well as articles on facility maintenance, salaries and benefits, and more. Beyond the ballot this election will have far reaching consequences, however. Elected officials will take crucial roles in shaping budgets and taxes; school board officials will influence whether or not the district resists the statewide Learn Everywhere initiative; municipal officials will play a crucial role in the discussion of whether or not dogs should be required to be leashed in Whitaker Woods or what the zoning rules will look like and thus, the housing situation in Conway. Voting will take place by ballot at the Conway Community Building, also known as the Recreation Center, from 8am to 7pm tomorrow.
