Duke University biologist Will Wilson (below right) has opened his campaign for a seat on the Board of County Commissioners in next year's elections.
He has the Committee to Elect Will Wilson registered at the county Board of Elections, and a campaign website at www.ww4cc.com.
Wilson applied to fill out the remaining term Commissioner Becky Heron when Heron after Heron retired in July. He subsequently withdrew, though, in favor of Wendy Jacobs, whom Heron had named as her choice for a successor.
Jacobs, though, lost to Pam Karriker in the commissioners' vote last week.
Commissioner elections are partisan, with primaries in the spring and a general election in November. Wilson, according to his website, is a member of the Durham County Democratic Executive Committee.
