Three Seek Another Term

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Filing for local offices slowed down after the initial rush last week.

Robert Wisecarver filed for re-election as a Republican candidate for county commission. He is the current board chair.

Two seats on the county board are open – the one held by Wisecarver and one held by Carl Humphrey. Two other Republican candidates filed – John Ferguson and Dan Barrett.

The two incumbents to the Davie County Board of Education are the only candidates to file for that office as of Monday. Chad Fuller and Barbara Owens both filed for re-election in the non-partisan election.

For Davie Clerk of Court, incumbent Ellen Drechsler is being challenged by fellow Republican, Sonya Spry.

Davie Sheriff Andy Stokes is unopposed as of Monday.

Filing continues through noon on Friday, Feb. 28. Primaries and the school board election will be in May, with the general election in November.

Other filings of note: Republican Andrew Brock for the N.C. Senate; Republican Julia C. Howard for the N.C. House; Superior Court Judge for District 22B, Mark Elliott Klass; and four district court judges – John Rodwell Penry Jr., Jimmy Laird Myers, Wayne Leonard Michael and Mary Fowler Covington.
