Eight Republicans and one Democrat are running for three vacant seats on the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners. Voters will narrow down the Republican field in the primary tomorrow. Three Republicans will be chosen to stand in the general election on Nov 3.
Commissioner Anita McCall said she loves Lincoln County and hopes to be elected to a second, four-year term on the board.
“I’d like to see us move further,” she told the Lincoln Times. “We’ve actually done more with less money than has ever been done. I’d like to continue doing that. We lowered our tax rate and accomplished so much with capital projects.”
McCall is an engineer. She served on the city of Lincolnton Planning and Zoning Board and Board of Adjustments boards for six years. The other Republicans in the race are Martin Oakes, Robert Avery, Cathy Davis, Glenn Fiscus, Tim Holder, Carroll Mitchem and George Mull.
Projects that McCall helped bring about include the new Lincoln County Board of Elections facility, the new Senior Center, and the county administrative building renovations.
“All of this and we lowered the tax rate,” she said.
