2013 is an election year for many NC municipalities and Lewisville is among them. Folks can register as candidates between July 5-19 so whose hat is already in the ring now that we're not quite halfway through the registration period? Here's a quick rundown:
Mayor – Incumbent Dan Pugh has registered and right now he's running unopposed.
Council – Incumbents Fred Franklin, Jeff Zenger and Robert Greene have filed to run. Former councilman and mayor Mike Horn has filed to run for a council seat after sitting out last term due to term limits.
That's it for now, but the next six or seven days should bring a flurry of filings. Incumbent council member Tom Lawson has reached his term limit so he'll have to take a break for at least one term. That leaves only two other incumbents, Ed Smith and Mayor Pro-Tem Sandra Mock, who have yet to file.
FYI, you can find the list of registered candidates at the Forsyth County Board of Elections website.
