"...Burckley has advised, researched and designed campaigns
for county Commissioners Billy Yow and Melvin “Skip” Alston
and for state Rep. Alma Adams.
He said last week that he was working for six candidates in this year’s City Council elections,
including incumbents Trudy Wade, Mary Rakestraw and Zack Matheny;
at-large candidate Nancy Vaughan; and mayoral candidate Bill Knight.
...Vaughan declined to comment about the arrest because she was not aware of the details. “Bill has a good strategic mind,” Vaughan said. “I don’t know what went on (Tuesday) night.”
