As expected, Matthews resident and former town commissioner Bill Brawley filed to run for the District 103 seat being vacated by Jim Gulley. That brings the candidate total to three for District 3: Brawley and Lloyd Austin, both Republicans, and Ann Newman, a Democrat.

Election 2009: Candidate questionnaires, letters to the editor and more

vote[6]-745669

The November 3 election is next Tuesday and the turnout is expected to be higher than usual according to the Board of Elections Michael Dickerson. The Mint Hill Times, for the past month, has run candidate questionnaires for Mint Hill mayor and commissioners, Matthews mayor and town council and the seat for District 6 Board of Education. Each day until the election we will re-run the questionnaires in their entirety as they answered by all the candidates. We will also have bonus coverage including letters to the editor, links to the candidates Web sites and more. As Dickerson said, this election won’t be as high profile as the last presidential election, but there are enough intriguing races across Mecklenburg County to make this an above-average off-year election.
