Picerno Among Early Filers for Office
Current County Commissioner Nick Picerno is among four local candidates who filed for state and county elections.
Picerno is one of two candidates who have filed in the race for two county commissioner seats. Picerno has filed for re-election to District II, which Randy Saunders, a member of the Village of Whispering Pines Council, has filed for County Commissioner District IV.
Both are Republicans.
District IV incumbent commissioner Tim Lea announced last week that he would not seek re-election. Lea has served on the board since 2004.
Aberdeen resident Tommy Davis has filed as a Republican candidate for N.C. Senate District 29.
Moore County is being moved from District 22 to District 29 under redistricting. Current state Sen. Harris Blake is not seeking re-election.
Incumbent School Board member Bruce Cunningham has filed for re-election in District V.
The filing period for the November election runs through noon on Feb. 29.
