NASHVILLE — The municipal candidate filing period is closed for Spring Hope and Middlesex and extended for town commissioners in Bailey.

The filing deadline for town commissioner in Bailey has been extended to noon on Friday, July 23, said Nash County Elections Director John Kearney.

“With two seats up for election and only one candidate having filed, the Board of Elections has extended candidate filing in this contest only,” Kearney said.

Dwan Finch and Shelley Bullard hadn’t filed for reelection by noon Friday.

Newcomer Dillion Bissette filed to run for commissioner.

If no other candidate files by the deadline, write-in votes will be tallied in the contest, Kearney said. 

In Spring Hope, newcomers Kyle Pritchard and Prudence Wilkins, a town commissioner, filed for the office of mayor. Long-serving Mayor Buddy Gwaltney didn’t file to run for reelection.

Seven candidates filed for three seats on the Spring Hope Board of Commissioners. Incumbents Brent Cone, Drew Griffin and Ricky Tucker will vie with newcomers Dap Dunston, Jason Himmelright, Tony Jefferys and Eric Gainey for town commissioner seats in Spring Hope.

In Middlesex, incumbent Mayor Lu Harvey Lewis will face challenger Arnold Vick.

Town Commissioners Ann Lewis and Harold Meacombs will run unopposed.
