Results Stun Peterson
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – Mayoral Candidate Harper Peterson says his defeat surprised him.
Peterson campaigned against the convention center and water and sewer authority. He says Bill Saffo's victory gives city council a clear direction to move in.

Unofficial results show the third candidate, Justin Lanasa, garnered nearly 5% of the vote.
