Election filing to start on Monday

Havelock’s mayor said he would be running for re-election, but two city commissioners are being noncommittal about their political futures.

Filing for Havelock’s municipal elections this fall opens on Monday.

Up for grabs in the election is the mayor’s seat as well as two commissioner seats currently held by Will Lewis and Jim Stuart.

Sanders said Monday that he would file for re-election.

"There are a lot of projects going on, and it’s a really important time in Havelock’s history and in our future," Sanders said. "We’ve got the sewer plant. We’ve got the new city hall. We’ve got absolute uncertainty in Washington. I have served on the (Allies for Cherry Point’s Tomorrow) committee for many years and I really would like to have the opportunity to continue to work on those issues.

"Hopefully over the years we have created some excellent working relationships with our congressional delegation, and I just think that it would be helpful if I was still in the mayor’s position. I think I can be helpful, and the voters will let me know in November."

Sanders said he is comfortable in the position of mayor.
