THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE TOWN
You know the buildings, but what goes on inside may be a bit of an enigma.
It's time we demystify the Town Hall with a behind-the-scenes peek at the people supporting the Town. 
What you already know: Cornelius is governed by a Mayor and a Board of Commissioners that are elected by the citizens of Cornelius every two years.
