Elections '09: Two candidates file at the last minute in Durham

Posted by on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 3:36 PM

At the final hour--literally--Durham's election field expanded by two candidates, before closing at noon today:

-Durham County Republican Party Secretary John Tarantino filed to run against incumbent Cora Cole-McFadden, and Donald Hughes, in Ward 1.

-Darius Little filed to run in Ward 2 against incumbent Howard Clement, and three other challengers, after the Herald-Sun ran a story in today's paper on his lengthy rap sheet (registration required).

In his campaign filing (PDF, 72 KB), Little discloses that he has been convicted of a felony, which Little also confirmed in an interview with the Indy. Public records databases indicate that in 2006, Little was convicted of obtaining property by false pretenses and obstructing justice, both felony offenses. The Indy is obtaining court records to confirm Little's criminal record.

Little says his life experience "reflects [his] ability to understand the homeless, the underrepresented, the middle class, as well as the upper class."

Meanwhile,  Tarantino told the Indy he has "specific areas of concern ... as a homeowner, regarding the image of Durham," but declined to elaborate further.

Check back for updates.
