Interview with Orange Mayor Dwayne Warren

Last week, Local Talk published interviews with Orange mayoral candidates Janice Morrell and East Ward Councilman Kerry Coley. Due to unforeseen circumstances, incumbent Mayor Dwayne Warren was unable to participate. However, we were eventually able to sit down with the mayor for an interview.

Interview with Orange Mayoral Candidate Janice Morrell

The election is Orange is shaping up to be one for the ages. Per our tradition, Local Talk sat down with the candidates to find out what they have to offer the residents of Orange. We reached out to Janice Morrell, Councilman Kerry Coley, and incumbent Mayor Dwayne Warren. While Ms. Morrell and Mr. Coley honored our request for an interview, Mr. Warren did not participate.

Dhiren Shah: Hello, Ms. Morrell, and welcome to this interview. You have run for mayor twice before, but unsuccessfully. Why are you running again?


Interview with Orange Mayoral Candidate Kerry Coley

Dhiren Shah: Hello, Mr. Coley, and welcome to this interview. What can you do as mayor of Orange that you are currently unable to do as a councilman?

Kerry Coley: We can hire a better Business Administrator who can provide better city services. We can get our streets cleaned. As a councilman, I only have the ability to ask and request the administration to provide certain services when they are brought to my attention or when I see certain deficiencies. As mayor, I will have the authority to direct resources to correct issues immediately.
