Important election deadlines

When Lee Berry was elected in 2013 as mayor of Ellerbe, he declared his primary message is to let the traveling public know that Ellerbe was open for business.

Election-148x150Based on the new Ellerbe Springs Bed and Breakfast road sign situated two miles from the recently opened inn and campground, things are going well — well enough for Berry to file on Wednesday for re-election.

His was the only new application for candidacy submitted to the Richmond County Board of Elections. The filing period remains open until noon on Friday, July 17.

On Tuesday, Rockingham City Councilman John Hutchinson filed for re-election and Barbara Young put her nam in for one of the two open seats on the Dobbins Heights Town Council.

On Monday, Dobbins Heights Mayor Antonio Blue filed for another term in office, as did Rockingham Mayor Steve Morris and Rockingham City Council members C. Bennett Deane III and Denise Sullivan also filed for re-election. In addition, Anne M. Edwards — appointed after Councilman Travis Billingsley resigned in April — filed to retain her seat.

Hamlet Mayor Bill Bayless and Councilman Johnathan Buie also filed for re-election, while David Lindsey filed to seek one of the open seats in Hamlet.
