Filing opens for Greenville municipal elections today at noon


Anybody interested in running for three Greenville City Council seats that are up for grabs this fall may officially put their hat in the ring today beginning at noon.

Filing for the District 2, District 4 and one at-large seat ends March 30 at noon. One seat on the Commission of Public Works is also open.

Although the election is partisan, candidates will file at the Greenville County Voter Registration office at County Square instead of with their political party.

At least two of the City Council seats will be contested.

Gaye Sprague, who holds the at-large seat, has said she will not seek re-election. Greenville businessman John DeWorken has announced he plans to run for the seat as a Republican. Former Greenville Forward Executive Director Russell Stall plans to run as a Democrat.

Long-time Councilwoman Lillian Brock Flemming holds the District 2 seat. She has said she will seek re-election.

District 4 incumbent David Sudduth is expected to have competition in the Republican primary. Wil Brasington, executive director of the Clemson University Alumni Association and former president of the Alta Vista Neighborhood Association, has announced he’ll run for the seat.
