Chadbourn’s Mayor is running for a new office. Mayor Kenneth Waddell says he plans to file for the State House District 20 seat. He’ll challenge incumbent, Rep. Dewey Hill for the Democratic nomination in May 2010. Waddell has been mayor of Chadbourn for four years, and has served on town council since 1988. A former school teacher, Waddell says he plans to focus his campaign around creating jobs, especially in small business in rural counties.
