In the Page 1 story on the mayoral candidate forum which appeared in the March 9 edition of the Burleson Star, incorrect information appeared regarding hosting of the event.

The story states the Facebook advertisement for the event said it was “hosted by Ken Shetter.” However, when one places an event announcement on Facebook, the person placing the announcement is automatically referred to as the “host.” This does not mean Shetter actually hosted the forum – it was, in fact, hosted by the Burleson Professional Fire Fighters Association, which is stated in the Facebook ad being referenced. In addition, when candidate Katherine Reading posted notice of the same event on her Facebook page, the listing named her as “host,” a fact not included in the story.

Any implication in the story that a candidate promoting the forum on Facebook is somehow manipulating events is incorrect.
