As of yesterday afternoon, there were only two candidates reported as having filed for the Town Council election. Just this afternoon, I found this on WMPM's news page:
"Princeton Mayor Don Rains will be unopposed. Incumbent Commissioners David Starling and Larry Withrow will be challenged for their two seats by Billy Sutton. In Selma, Mayor Harry Blackley will return without opposition. Debbie Johnson, Jackie Lacy, and Troy Laplante are seeking two council seats."
I find this interesting. It means that if Debbie Johnson is indeed running for re-election, she sure waited until the last minute to file. According to an earlier story in "The Selma News", she was undecided about running for re-election. In yesterday's "Selma News", today's "News and Observer", and yesterday's WMPM site, there were still only two of us having filed. I guess that this makes the upcoming election a little more interesting.
