PEMBROKE — Just one candidate jumped into the race Wednesday for a seat on the Lumbee Tribal Council.


Scott Bell filed for District 6, which is currently represented by Larry Chavis. Chavis can’t seek re-election because the Lumbee constitution does not allow a council member to serve more than two consecutive three-year terms.


Bell did not provide The Robesonian with any biographical information.


Larry Townsend filed Tuesday for the District 6 seat.


The candidate filing period for the Nov. 12 election continues through Sept. 13. Candidates for any of the positions, all of which are for three-year terms, can file at the elections office, 707 Union Chapel Road, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The filing fee is $250.


Tribal Council candidates must be enrolled tribal members of at least 21 years of age; have maintained their principal residence in their district for no less than one year; and have no felony conviction.
