Day 5 of candidate filings: Bell has a challenger; North Hills GM running for Raleigh Council

Posted by on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 4:35 PM

With one week down for the 2009 election candidate filings, Durham Mayor Bill Bell has a challenger, Steve Williams, a Durham native who grew up in Walltown, and graduated from St. Augustine’s College, where he received a track-and-field scholarship. His platform, which is listed on his Web site, includes crime, economic development, the environment, housing and education.

Meanwhile, a third candidate has entered the Chapel Hill Town Council race, Jon Dehart, a mortgage account representative. There are four candidates running for three seats on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board, the most recent being J.M. (Joe Green), a UNC education professor.

And in Raleigh, District E, which until today was the lone council district without a candidate, now has one: North Hills General Manager Bonner Gaylord, who serves on the Raleigh planning commission.
