Races for local offices are heating up, as more candidates threw their rings into the hat  prior to the noon Friday deadline.

All Republican incumbents for county commissioner filed for re-election last week – Mark Jones of Mocksville, Richard B. Poindexter of Advance, and Terry Renegar of Bermuda Run.

Also filing for commissioner last week were Craig Myers of Mocksville, a Republican, and Justin Vocke of Mocksville, a libertarian. Republicans Mike Butero of Mocksville and Dustin Smith of Advance filed on opening day.

Four seats will be up for election on the Davie County Board of Education. Filing so far are Republicans Jeff Jones of Advance, W.G. “Dub” Potts of Mocksville and Stephanie Hurst of Mocksville.

Potts is the only incumbent school board member to file so far; the other seats are held by Paul Drechsler, Wendy Horne and Cammie Webb.

A primary election is scheduled for March 5 to pick candidates for the general election in November.

Filings must be made at the Davie Board of Elections office at 161 Poplar St., Mocksville (lower level, back of Brock Building). Fees: 30th State Senate District and 77th State House District, $139.71; Davie Register of Deeds, $580; Davie commissioner, $68; and school board, $36, all payable to the Davie Board of Elections.
