The extended filing period for mayor in Wilson’s Mills ended on Friday, July 23rd. The original deadline was Friday, July 16th but was extended one additional week after no one filed before the first deadline had passed.
Last week, three candidates filed for the office.
Fleta A. Byrd, Phillip A. Wright and Shawn Fritz will face off in November for the mayoral seat. Wright has been the acting mayor since Jim Uzzle resigned suddenly in March 2021.
