Cornelius Today has announced the members of its newly formed Editorial Advisory Board. Board members will help guide coverage, provide a broader understanding of our community and tap into the thoughts and opinions of a variety of citizens.

“This is about content, diversity, different points of view and gathering stories about the people that make our town a good place to live,” said the editor of Cornelius Today, Dave Yochum.

The board will meet twice a year over breakfast or lunch at a Cornelius restaurant. The members are:

Charles Knox, 52, lives on Bethel Church Road. He is the founder of The Knox Group, a commercial real estate development and brokerage firm. A graduate of Davidson College, he is a former president of the Charlotte chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. He is a member of the board of directors of Aquesta Financial and chairman of the bank. He and his wife Colette have two children.

Nabors said the written word is a great way to look at different ways people think and how they act. “Just because I think one way does not mean I think what you or others think is wrong, it’s just another perspective. I feel to live and work together productively, all opinions matter. If one looks at all the options, and makes informed decisions, everyone benefits. I think your paper makes a difference in the community,” Nabors said.
