Incumbent County Commissioner Joe Bowser filed for re-election today, while previously announced candidates Fred Foster and Stephen Hopkins officially joined the race.
Today's three filings brings the total field to 11 candidates for the five positions on the Durham Board of County Commissioners, including all but one of the incumbents.
Commissioner Pam Karriker, elected last summer to serve out the remaining term of retired Commissioner Becky Heron, said then that she would not be a candidate this year.
One contest has appeared in the race for School Board, with John Tarantino, who has previously run for City Council, School Board and state Senate without success, opposing incumbent Leigh Bordley for an at-large seat. District A incumbent Minnie Forte-Brown and District B incumbent Heidi Carter are unopposed for re-election so far.
Filing ends at noon Wednesday.
