Seven File for Mayor, Council Races

WINNSBORO – Filings for the Town of Winnsboro’s upcoming municipal elections closed Monday with seven candidates tossing their hats into the ring.

Dr. Roger Gaddy, of Parklane Road, will seek another term as mayor, but not without challenge. Also seeking the mayor’s post is Michael L. Davis, of Frazier Street, and District 2 Town Councilman Bill Haslett, of Highway 213.

Haslett’s bid for mayor leaves his District 2 seat vacant, and two Sandcreek Drive residents have offered themselves up to the voters. Sonya Cookie Kennedy and Stan Klaus will seek Haslett’s seat on Council, a seat to which Klaus is no stranger. Klaus served District 2 for 12 years – from 1997 to 2009.

Pamela L. Smith, of N. Zion Street, will challenge Jack R. Wilkes, of W. High Street, in his bid for another term on the District 4 seat.

The elections will be held April 2.
