Candidates getting the jump as filing opens

SALISBURY — Filing for the 2012 election began at noon today.
Among the first to file for office was N.C. Rep. Harry Warren, who hopes to have a second term representing District 77. He addressed supporters outside the county administration building Monday before heading inside to the elections office.
“I know there’s a lot of work that needs to be done, and I know I’m going to run again, so there’s no reason not to put first things first,” Warren said.
Some people in the small crowd also carried signs for Craig Pierce, who filed for Rowan County commissioner at noon along with Gus Andrews.
“I wanted to show the voters of Rowan County that I am fully invested in seeking this office,” Pierce said.
Andrews, a former commissioner, said he’s running again because he feels like he now has more time to devote to serving the county.
Todd Adams also filed for re-election today to the Kannapolis Board of Education. He took that step right away, Adams said, to let people know he is committed to keeping his seat on the board.
