Catotti, Peterson file for Durham City Council spots

Tuesday was the second day candidates had to file for two municipal races in Durham. Just like yesterday, today's filings were not big surprises.

Incumbent City Councilwoman Diane Catotti filed to run for one of three at-large seats on the council that are being elected in November. Early this year, Catotti wasn't sure whether she would be seeking another term, but announced late last month she would be seeking a third term.

Meanwhile, familiar candidate Victoria Peterson, the founder of a non-profit job training program and ever-present public commenter at city, county and school board meetings, also filed for a spot on the council. Peterson has run unsuccessfully for multiple public offices.

Catotti and Peterson join candidate Steve Schewel in the race. Incumbent Eugene Brown also said he will be running, but hasn't filed yet. Filing ends Aug. 12.

If more than six candidates file for the three at-large seats on the council, the county will hold a primary October 11. If no primary is required, the general municipal election will be held Nov. 8 and the three candidates for council who receive the most votes will be elected. (see a schedule)

Keep up with candidate filings here and at the Durham County Board of Elections page for candidate filings.

Sounds like hitting the accelerator on gentrification and push out. More hand outs for developers.
