During the upcoming primary election, voters will select three candidates for New Hanover County Board of Commissioners on the Republican ticket. Derrick Hickey, former Board of Education member, is one of seven potentials.
As a fourth generation New Hanover County native, Democrat Robert Murray served 20 years in the army and returned to Porters Neck where he continues to run his family’s farm and volunteer with the fire department.
Jason Thompson is one of two incumbents running for a seat on the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners. The Republican candidate completes his first four-year term this year. And as he told WHQR’s Rachel Lewis Hilburn, he believes in term limits – which means he’s running for what would be his second and final term.
