Charles Warren to run for Oak Island mayor

OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) -- Former Brunswick County Commissioner Charles Warren is getting back into politics.

Warren has filed to run for mayor of Oak Island in November's election. Incumbent Betty Wallace has also filed to run for another two-year term.

Warren served one term as a Brunswick County Commissioner. His term included several controversies involving the county's Social Services Board. In December 2011, fellow commissioners censured Warren and threw him out of a commission meeting.

Warren lost his reelection bid in 2012's Republican primary. He later switched to the Democratic Party.

Municipal races are non-partisan.

I interviewed C. Warren today. My neighbor had 2 of his campaign signs on her property, & I removed 1 of them, which Mr. Warren picked up later. I asked him why he put them there, & he told me his interpretation of the law was giving him the right to put them anywhere as long as it is placed within the state right of way. I called him back to ask him what law he was interpreting, & he evasively thanked me for my concern, & that the signs will not be placed back where they appeared today. He did not ask permission of the property owner. He just stuck 2 signs where he wanted to. That's just wrong. He was rude on the phone, & I pray to God no one on Oak Island is misinformed enough to cast a single vote for a candidate to break town code, state & federal election law to try to become our next mayor. I strongly urge no one to endorse his campaign.

THIS JUST HAS TO BE A JOKE. HE IS THE LAUGHING STOCK OF BRUNSWICK COUNTY. WHY WOULD HE WANT TO BE LITTLE HIMSELF AND BE TALKED ABOUT BY RUNNING FOR SUCH AN IMPORTANT POSITION.

Oh Charles, you never learn, do you? Silly little narcissistic racist; crawl back into your hole and pull the rock back over your foolish head.

Not a chance in hell.

You've been in the news with too many negative vibes. Don't waste your money, your time or your effort. Pigs still don't fly.

don't worry, he's not going to waste one thin dime of his own money, hasn't been long ago he was seen in Wilmington still wearing county commissioner shirts, he's toast and he knows it, just wants to stir up more hatred and emotions
