Last updated 2/19/2020 at 3:26pm
Transylvania County Commission Chairman Mike Hawkins and Vice Chairman Page Lemel have been certified to appear on the ballot for the November general election, according to Director of Elections Jeff Storey.
Hawkins and Lemel each obtained in excess of the required 1,004 petition signatures of registered county voters last week, and Storey confirmed the certification in emails to Hawkins and Lemel on Feb. 14.
The two commissioners were required to petition for inclusion after their December announcement of their change in political registration from Republican to Unaffiliated.
