Only four local and state races remain without opposition with one week remaining in the filing period for the 2014 elections.
A second republican has filed to seek the seat of the North Carolina House of Representatives District 50. Hillsborough’s Rod Chaney has filed to run again, just as he did in 2012.
Graig Meyer has held the seat since November 7 when he was sworn in to replace Valerie Foushee, who now serves in the Senate representing district 23. Senator Foushee was sworn in on September 25.
Both Senator Foushee and Representative Verla Insko, who represents District 56, are still the only two to file for their respective seats.
Hillsborough’s Rosa Williams has added her name to the Orange County Schools Board race. She joins the two incumbents, Donna Coffey and Brenda Stephens, with four seats up this year.
And, one more person has added her name for the special election for the Carrboro Board of Aldermen. Chapel Hill native Theresa Watson adds to Bethany Chaney’s filing to fill the seat left vacant by Mayor Lydia Lavelle.
The filing period closes Friday at noon. Stay tuned to WCHL and Chapelboro.com for the latest about the 2014 elections.
