Sandra Spaulding Hughes is running for the House of Representatives, 18th district. She filed at the Board of Elections this afternoon. Both political activist Hollis Briggs and attorney Thom Goolsby have said they plan to run as well. Also today, New Hanover County Commissioner Nancy Pritchett filed for re-election.

Hughes running for state house

As I asked yesterday, what was her record as a member of the Wilmington city council???????

Sandra Spaulding Hughes

I am glad to see that there are several running for the office that Wright holds. It is time to get him out of office, and if he really was concerned about the citizens he represents, he would go ahead and resign. Instead, he is putting himself first, instead of those who voted for him.
