Jones aims for NC House seat
Just a month after resigning from the Columbus County Board of Elections to focus on “personal opportunities,” Tabor City businessman Brenden Jones has formally announced as a candidate for the N.C. House of Representatives.
Jones, a Republican, laid campaign groundwork weeks ago, preparing his race for the seat now held by first-term incumbent Ken Waddell, Chadbourn’s former mayor.
Waddell, a Democrat, is expected to seek re-election to the District 46 seat, representing all of Columbus County and portions of Bladen and Robeson counties.
Primary elections are scheduled for May 6, 2014, with nominees to square off next Nov. 4 in the general election. State lawmakers in North Carolina serve two-year terms.
