COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - As the filing period is creeping to a close for the 2009 elections, it is clear that at least two towns will have new mayors.
Whiteville Mayor Dial Gray will not be running for re-election. He has been mayor in the town for the past four years.
Right now, Whiteville City Council member Terry Mann is the only candidate who has filed to run for mayor, but there will be a write-in space on the ballot.
The Town of Kure Beach will also have a new mayor in November.
Mayor Mac Montgomery said he will not be running for re-election. He has been the mayor of Kure Beach for two years and was a town alderman for two years prior.
Dean Lambeth and Jim Vatrt have both filed to run for mayor in Kure Beach.
