LUMBERTON — Two people filed on Tuesday for the November municipal elections, including a longtime Lumberton city councilman.
Erich Hackney will be seeking a fifth term on City Council representing Precinct 8. So far Hackney is the only person to file for that seat.
Hackney, 56, is a criminal investigator with the Robeson County District Attorney’s Office and has 35 years of service in law enforcement.
“I am as energetic and enthusiastic now as I was when first elected in 2001 and consider it an honor and privilege to represent Precinct 8 as well as the city of Lumberton. I am equally proud of the accomplishments the council has made in spite of financial restraints.”
Nathaniel Solomon has filed for re-election to the Parkton Board of Commissioners. It would be his third term on the board if re-elected.
Solomon, 63, is a member of Missionary Baptist Church in Parkton. He and his wife, Wanda, have seven children, all of whom are adults now.
“I’m running just in the hopes of making a difference. I want to make the town better for all its residents.”
The filing period for the non-partisan elections, which will be held on Nov. 7, began on Friday at noon. The period extends to noon on July 21.
There are elections this year in all of Robeson County’s municipalities. Fees to file differ by town and depending on the seat a person is seeking.
