Three New Raleigh Council Candidates Throw Their Hats in the Ring

Posted by on Fri, Jul 14, 2017 at 6:22 PM

Three new candidates for Raleigh City Council had filed papers with the Wake County Board of Elections by the close of business Friday.

They were Robert William Axtell and William Stacy Miller III in the at-large race, in which the top two vote-getters win spots on the council. (Incumbent at-large member Russ Stephenson has filed to run—although Mary-Ann Baldwin has not—as has challenger Shelia Alamin-Khashoggi.) Meanwhile, Olen Leon Watson III filed to oppose incumbent Corey Branch and James G. Bledsoe in District C.

Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane and challenger Charles Francis seem likely to remain the highest-profile candidates in October 10 municipal elections, but city council races continue to take shape as well. Among the city council races, in District B, David Cox filed Tuesday to run for reelection, and he’ll be opposed by the man he beat two years ago, longtime Wake and Raleigh politician John Odom. District D incumbent Kay Crowder will square off against Bobby Plott Jr. And District E incumbent Bonner Gaylord also filed Tuesday, running so far without opposition.
