The filing period ended Friday and the following candidates will be on the November ballot:
Ø Duck – Incumbents Monica Thibodeau, Nancy Caviness, Neil Morrison and Bart Smith. Dave Wessel and Chuck Burdick also filed. All five Council seats are expiring. Incumbent Denver Lindley did not file to run again.
Ø Kill Devil Hills – Incumbents Bob Peele, Jeff Finch, Ray Sturza (Mayor); Sherry Rollason has filed to run for Mayor.
Ø Kitty Hawk – Incumbents Ervin Bateman and Emilie Klutz; John Mignogna has also filed to run. Voters will choose two to serve on the Town Council.
Ø Manteo – Incumbents Darrell Collins and H.A. Creef; Richie Burke has filed to run for the 2-yr. term and Hannan Fry has also filed; Jamie Daniels has filed to run for Mayor.
Ø Nags Head - Incumbents Bob Oakes and Wayne Gray.
Ø Southern Shores – Incumbents Dan Shields, Jodi Hess and David Sanders; James Pfizenmayer, Kevin Stroud and Ken Bukantas have also filed. Voters will choose three to serve on the Town Council.
To summarize, there will be a race for Mayor in Kill Devil Hills; with three challengers in Southern Shores, the three incumbents will be campaigning to keep their seats; and Duck could face losing one incumbent with two challengers vying for a seat; and one of two Kitty Hawk incumbents may possibly lose their seat with one challenger running against them. There will be no “race” in Manteo and Nags Head
