After last year's presidential campaign there stands to be a lot less fan fare surrounding this election season. But important races will take place in all of our area counties. In New Hanover County incumbent Bill Saffo will make his bid for re-election against challenger Paul Knight. Eleven people will bid for three available seats on the City Council. Among those running are current council members Margaret Haynes, Jim Quinn, and Earl Sheridan, while Charlie Rivenbark will attempt to return to the council after several years off. In Brunswick County, there won't be a race in Bolivia or Ocean Isle Beach. All of the positions up for election in the two towns won't be contested. In Bladen County only two races will be contested. Three candidates will run for Bladenboro Town Commissioner First Ward, where there is only one seat available. Three candidates will run for two vacant spots as the East Arcadia Town Commissioner. In Columbus County the Board of Elections will extend the filing period for Boardman Town Council for five more days. Only four people decided to run for the five available seats. In Pender County the race for Topsail Beach Commissioner will be the most hotly contested. Six candidates will run for three open positions.
