Alderman, school board vice chair file for re-election

Carrboro Alderman Sammy Slade and Michelle Brownstein, vice chairwoman of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education, filed their 2013 campaign bids Tuesday.

Slade, who is seeking his second term on the Board of Aldermen, joins incumbents Jacquelyn Gist and Randee Haven-O’Donnell, who filed for re-election Friday.

Alderwoman Lydia Lavelle also filed her intent Friday to run for Carrboro mayor. Mayor Mark Chilton is not seeking re-election. If Lavelle is elected, her replacement on the board could be chosen in a special election or appointed by other board members. Lavelle’s term as alderman ends in 2015.

Brownstein, a school board member since 2009, joins incumbent board member James Barrett on the Nov. 5 ballot. She is a retired surgeon and mother of four children.

School board member Gregory McElveen has not announced whether he will seek re-election.

The filing period for the 2013 election is open until noon July 19 at the Orange County Board of Elections in Hillsborough.
