Filing Ends For Nov. 7 Election


July 24, 2017

Unless challenged by a write-in campaign, Jimmy Harris will be elected to another four-year term in November as Brevard’s mayor.

No one else filed to run for the office. The filing period ended at noon on Friday.

Harris, a downtown businessman and owner of Harris ACE Hardware, was first elected in 1999.

Also on the ballot on Nov. 7 will be three seats on City Council. Incumbent Mac Morrow has been joined by Maureen Copelof and Jessica Gallagher.

Another incumbent, Ann Hollingsworth, decided not to seek another term, saying she enjoyed her one term on the council but that her “family needs me now.”

Morrow has served since 1986, with a brief interruption for military service in the 1990s. He is the general manager of Keir Manufacturing.

Copelof is a retired U.S. Naval officer who ran as the Democratic candidate last year for the N.C. District 113 seat, losing to Republican Cody Henson in the general election.

Gallagher is the business manager at Platt Architecture in downtown Brevard.

Three seats on the Rosman Board of Aldermen will be on the ballot in November, as well.

Incumbents Jared Crowe and Missy Hendricks have filed for another term.

Incumbent Roger Petit did not, and the third alderman seat will be occupied by Deedra Shelton, unless there is a challenge from a write-in campaign.

The Brevard and Rosman races are both nonpartisan.
