  1. Do you have no information for Bryson Jones (D) ?

    1. Author

      Not yet. Will update as info becomes available

  2. There are a couple of mistakes in your list.

    Charles Dudley is a Democrat who filed on Friday for House District 3, opposing Mike Speciale.

    Bryson Jones is a Democrat who filed on Friday for the open seat in the new District 79.

    Dr. Ginger Garner is a Democrat who filed yesterday in Carteret Co. for the Senate seat now held by Norman Sanderson.

      Information will be updated as it becomes available.

  3. Please update this list now that the filing deadline has passed. There’s nothing in the Sun Journal about who the candidates are.

      I have updated the filing list as of close of business Friday, Feb. 24. However, the filing deadline is noon Wednesday, Feb. 28.

  4. Absolute insult to long term citizens that ET Mitchell feels she can bestow her “wisdom” and “intelligence” upon those in the county that don’t have the wherewithal to make intelligent decisions and understand the long term issues needing attention. The money grab and bullying of management that occurred at Trent Court and Craven Terrace leaves downtown New Bern no better off after the lawyers and investors took their cuts. Mitchell was in the center of it all. Her stint as a City official was no better. Disgusting that one thinks they can throw some money at charitable causes and up on bill boards around town and the voting public will lay down like lemmings and support this candidate. Just because we’re not rich means we’re stupid contrary to some candidate’s assumptions. Go back to the beltway,we don’t need another DC bureaucrat telling us what’s good for us!
