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.
