Note: WGNS sent letters to all three (3) candidates, and invited them to be on this political forum. The letters were mailed June 17, 2014 to Adam Coggin, Rick Peppers and Bryan Terry. However, only Coggin and Terry were on the broadcast. A representative from Rick Peppers' campaign called and expressed concern that they had not seen the letter that was sent the previous month to the candidate's home address. They confirmed that the address was accurate, and was the one the station received from the Rutherford County Election Commission.
A listing of the broadcast with all three (3) candidates named was also posted for a month prior to the broadcast on the WGNS' website, and continues to be there.
In an effort to be fair to all candidates, WGNS spoke with Rick Peppers campaign representative on 7/14/2014 and attempted to set-up an interview on the Rutherford Issues radio broadcast. He did not accept the invitation at that time. If an available opening fits the candidate's schedule, WGNS will make the public aware.
