CHOCOWINITY — It was business as usual for the Town of Chocowinity on Election Day.

The Board of Commissioners met for its regularly scheduled meeting. With three unopposed candidates on Tuesday’s ballot, that board will look exactly the same when it meets again in December.

Mayor Jimmy Mobley and commissioners Billy Albritton and Louise Furman were re-elected Tuesday.

Mobley said board members had worked together for 20 to 30 years, and he looks forward to the coming months.

“We have several projects in the works: water and sewer, businesses relocating … a housing project getting ready to start in January, just different things that’s coming together now,” he said.

Mobley has been with the board since he was 21 years old. By the end of this new term, it will be 40 years.

With a business in the town where he was born and raised, Mobley’s Chocowinity roots run deep.

“I just want to be involved in the economic growth and the future of my hometown,” he said.
