(WECT) - A flurry of candidates signed up to run for office on the opening day of the filing period in North Carolina, including several familiar faces.
New Hanover County Commissioner Jonathan Barfield filed for the District 7 Congressional seat, currently held by Rep. Mike McIntyre. Fellow commissioner Woody White planned to file for the same race on Tuesday, but has pushed it back to Friday because of the impending wintry weather.
District Attorney Jon David will be seeking re-election as district attorney for Bladen, Columbus, and Brunswick counties.
Long-time Brunswick County Board of Education member Olaf "Bud" Thorsen is signed up to run for the County Commission in District 1. That seat is currently held by Commissioners Chairman Phil Norris. Fellow Republicans Frank Blue and Randy Thompson also signed up to run for that seat, according to the filing list in Brunswick County. Brunswick Sheriff John Ingram, State Senator Bill Rabon and State Representative Frank Iler all filed to run for re-election. You can read the whole list for the county here.
It's not the only movement on local school boards. In Pender County, former county commissioner F.D. Rivenbark is looking to get back in the game with a run for the Pender Board of Education in District 1. Also filing to run for Board of Education were Kenneth Lanier Jr. in District 2 and Katherine Herring in District 4. Chris Medlin (District 1) and David Piepmeyer (District 2) filed to run for county commission.
Along with the race between the former and current sheriff in New Hanover County, several people filed the official paperwork after previously announcing plans. Frankie Roberts, who runs the non-profit organization called LINC, threw his name in the ring for county commission. The full list is available here.
As of 5 p.m. Monday, Columbus and Bladen Counties had yet to post first day sign ups for local races.
