New Cherryville mayor thinks his hometown can rebound from scandal

Newly elected Cherryville Mayor H.L. Beam III said he doesn’t have all the answers to the town’s problems. But he feels like the City Council and new staff are dedicated to making things better. “I love this town. I’ve always wanted to run for political office and felt this was the perfect time. I felt it was a necessity,” he said. He hopes to revitalize downtown and overhaul Cherryville’s water and sewer systems.
