The qualifying deadline is only a little more than a month away in races that will be on the City of Fayetteville ballot come Nov. 4.
Incumbent City Mayor John Ed Underwood has said he will not be seeking re-election. Already, one candidate has qualified for the mayor’s race – that being Danny Bryant, who currently serves as a city alderman. Another candidate, Jonathan Law, has picked up qualifying papers for the race.
As of Friday, one candidate had qualified in the three aldermanic races on the ballot. Incumbent Alderman Tom Young has qualified, while incumbent Alderman Dorothy Small has picked up. The third alderman in the ballot, incumbent Marty Pepper, had not picked up as of late last week.
In the races for city school board, Tommy Holland has qualified for re-election, and both Jeff Whitmore and Mark Clark have picked up. All three of those candidates are incumbents.
The deadline for qualifying papers is set at noon on Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Lincoln County Election Commission at 208 East Davidson Street in Fayetteville.
