Filing for this fall’s municipal elections starts today.
All five towns in Montgomery County will be voting for Mayors. Mount Gilead Mayor Patty Almond is expected to run for reelection, but it remains unclear whether any other candidates will run for the office. In Troy, Mayor Roy Maness is expected to run again, while the Mayors of Biscoe and Star have said publicly they will not seek reelection, and the Mayor of Candor was undecided at last check.
All the towns will also vote for some of their Commissioners, including the seats currently held by Tim McAuley and Branson Webb in Mount Gilead.
WMTG will be at the Board of Elections office in Troy today, and we’ll report on first-day filings this afternoon.
