Candidate filing period wraps up – Rocky Mount Telegram (LJK)

NASHVILLE — Every race for the Rocky Mount City Council will be contested this year as candidate filing wraps up in the Twin Counties.

Robert Cordell filed to run for the Ward 5 seat opened by the decision by Councilman Tom Rogers not to run for re-election.

Cordell said he has a 30-point platform he is ready to share. He faces Lige Daughtridge for the seat.

Cordell joins 38 candidates filing this week, making for a total of 100 municipal candidates in Nash and Edgecombe counties since filing began July 5.

Castalia will see an extended filing period as one town board seat lacks a single candidate. The Nash County Board of Elections voted to extend the deadline another five days to noon Friday. (Read more)
