WAYNE — The Town of Wayne municipal election will take place Tuesday, June 11. Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Wayne Town Hall.

After completing his first term, incumbent Mayor Danny Grace is on the ballot running against James Ramey III.

Toney Atkins is running unopposed for town recorder. Dwayne Wallace and Kevin Bradshaw will go against each other for a municipal judge seat.

Nine candidates are running for five open spots on Town Council.

Incumbents Judy Watts, French Napier, Rosie Whipkey, Gary Akers and Jon Reed all are seeking re-election. Others running for council include Jim Dorton, Freelin Pridemore, Cathy Maynard and Harry Sowards.

The top five vote-getters will sit on Town Council beginning July 1 for a three-year term.

A proposition for those town council positions to move from three-year to four-year terms will also be on the ballot for this year.

Voters have the option to vote for or against the proposition which would elect officers in each subsequent election to four-year terms instead of three, allowing for municipal elections to coincide with county elections as a cost-saving measure.

According to council members, a similar proposition was on the ballot in a previous election but was not accepted.
