Fenwick joins school board race
by Anna Oakes
Jay Fenwick of Todd filed Friday to enter the race for three open seats on the Watauga County Board of Education.
This will be Fenwick's second attempt at the office after narrowly coming in fourth in 2012 vote totals behind Ron Henries, who filed for re-election earlier in the week.
Britt Springer of Boone also made her candidacy for district attorney official on Friday, joining fellow Republicans Nathan Miller of Boone and Seth Banks of Burnsville as a contender for the office.
The filing period for the 2014 elections continues through noon on Friday, Feb. 28.
