Two more candidates are in the running for county commissioner. Incumbent Brenda Howerton filed for re-election on Thursday and Larry Wayne Dixon, a newcomer to Durham politics, filed Friday.
They bring the field to seven, running for the five Board of County Commissioners positions. Incumbent Ellen Reckhow has also filed, along with challengers Dilcy Burton, Anita Daniels-Kenney, Wendy Jacobs and Will Wilson.
Durham NAACP President Fred Foster has registered a campaign committee for a try at a commissioner's seat, but has not filed as a candidate. Neighborhood organizer Steve Hopkins has announced his intention to run, but also has not filed.
Candidate filing ends at noon Wednesday.
