New names added to municipal candidate list

Three more people have added their names to the candidate list for this fall’s municipal elections, including two newcomers, since the filing period opened Friday.

Mayor Merrill Sanford filed with the city clerk Monday. So far, he is running unopposed.

Incumbent Assembly member Jerry Nankervis, however, will have some competition. Robert Percival and Jason Puckett both filed Tuesday and will be competing against Nankervis for the District 2 seat.

Incumbent Assembly member Loren Jones remains the lone contender for the District 1 seat, and incumbent School Board member Andi Story is the only person to have filed for any of the three seats open on the Board of Education.

The filing period closes on Aug. 17 at 4:30 p.m.
