Bill Carver, a former headmaster at Grace Christian School and former member of the Central Carolina Community College Board of Trustees, filed for a seat on the Lee County Board of Commissioners Thursday, becoming the third Republican to do so.

Carver was the final Lee County candidate to file for the 2020 election cycle, and the period to do so closed at noon today. Republican Sandra Jones filed for a seat on Dec. 18, and Republican Randy Todd did so the day before.

Three Democrats – incumbents Amy Dalrymple and Cameron Sharpe, as well as newcomer Mark Lovick, who also sought election in 2018 – filed on Dec. 3. Incumbent Kevin Dodson, who won a seat as a Republican in 2016 before switching parties, did not file for re-election.

Stephen Coble, a Republican school board member who first won election in 2016, also did not file for re-election to his seat.

The Rant will have more information about local candidates for the 2020 election in January’s printed edition.
