Commissioner candidates to speak Oct. 6

Published 2:06 pm Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The six candidates vying for three seats on the Tyrrell County Board of Commissioners have been invited to speak briefly on the front steps of the Courthouse at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 6.

The gathering is sponsored by the Tyrrell County Chamber of Commerce so that voters can hear what each candidate feels is important for Tyrrell County.

The six candidates for the 3 seats on the county’s governing board are Democrats Nathan T. “Tommy” Everett  (incumbent), Darryl Liverman, and Dorothy Spencer; Republicans Seth Gibbs and Robert Thompson; and unaffiliated candidate Lawrence Swain (incumbent).

Two county commissioners, Democrat Nina Griswell and Republican Jordan Davis, are in the middle of their four-year terms and thus are not on this year’s ballot.

Call the Chamber office at 252-796-1996 with any questions about the event.

Although Candidates’ Night will be held outside, face masks (bring your own) and social distancing (six feet separation from others) are highly recommended.
