Lydia Lavelle announced on Thursday in her weekly appearance on WCHL’s Aaron Keck Show that she will be running for mayor once again in Carrboro’s municipal elections this fall.
Lavelle is currently in her second two-year term as mayor. She ran unopposed in the 2016 election. No other candidates have publicly announced their intentions to run for mayor this fall.
Barbara Foushee has announced that she will be running for a seat on the Carrboro Board of Aldermen this election cycle.
Three board members – Jacquelyn Gist, Randee Haven-O’Donnell and Sammy Slade – currently hold seats on the board that are up for election in November. None of the three have announced their intentions at this time.
Board member Michelle Johnson’s term is set to expire in 2019, but she will be leaving the board in May as she is relocating. The board is still making a decision on how to fill Johnson’s seat with options being appointing a new board member or placing the seat on the ballot in November.
