Mayor Brenda Bozeman stepped away from her seat on town council last month for one issue that was too close to her heart.
Bozeman recused herself from a board decision because her family has offered to donate land to the town.
The property is at 158 S. Navassa Road in Leland on the Cape Fear River.
“It’s where my mom lived the last 40-plus years after she remarried,” Bozeman said, adding the blended family included 15 children. Bozeman is the youngest of six siblings. Her stepfather, C.J. Dilda, had nine children.
