    I don’t think he really wants to be mayor. He chose not to serve as mayor pro tem.

      I’m inclined to agree. He’s just trying to get revenge against Allen over the whole Mike West “Make Goldsboro PD Great Again!” Facebook fiasco. The majority of the city council, including Allen, refused to fire Scott Stevens, who himself refused to fire Mike West over that Facebook post.

    Foster as mayor is the LAST thing this city needs! The only bright side to him running is that if he loses (and I really hope he does), then he will no longer be involved with the city council.
