Two significant things happened after Spartanburg voters went to the polls on November 7th. First, voters passed a penny sales tax and votes were so tight, that a new mayor was yet to be known.  This subject matter was discussed during this More to the Story from Nov. 15, 2017 with Reporter Bob Montgomery of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal.

While the event has since taken place, this Friday Feature Interview of the Week aired (Nov. 10, 2017) just before the first ever Asheville Food Truck and Craft Beer Festival.  Expect the event to continue in the future, as you listen back to all that goes in to these events that are presented all across the country by Food Truck Festivals of America.  Representing the group and interviewed by WNCW was Janet Prensky.  You'll be hungry after hearing this one!
