There are several contested seats for Pike’s municipal council races this Nov. 7, including three in Williamson and one in Zebulon.
In Williamson, longtime mayor Steve Fry is being challenged by newcomer Andy Watson. Incumbent Stephen Levin faces challenger Scott Rohde for the Council Post 1 seat. Incumbent Steve Davis will face previous council member Bunny Scoggins for Council Post 5. Carol Berry is unopposed for Council Post 4.
Dewey Yarbrough (incumbent) will face off against challenger Jeff Sawyer for the District 2, Council Post 3 seat in Zebulon. Joe Walter (incumbent) was the only one to qualify as mayor and incumbent Claude Hollis was the only candidate for the District 1, Council Post 3 seat.
In Concord, none of their three seats were contested. Josh Caldwell qualified for Council Seat Post #3, Subrenna Weathers qualified for Council Seat Post #4 and Ric Calhoun qualified for Council Seat Post #5.
In Molena, incumbent mayor Joyce Corley is unopposed, so the cities of Concord and Molena will not hold council elections this year.
