Randolph County incumbents file to keep seats

ASHEBORO – Two incumbents on the Randolph County Board of Commissioners have filed paperwork to run for re-election.

Kenny Kidd of Asheboro and Maxton McDowell of Asheboro are seeking to retain their seasons.

The filing period for the March primary opened Dec. 4 and closes at noon Friday.

The filings include federal offices, numerous statewide positions along with seats on the county level.

Also filing for a Randolph County commissioner seat are Christopher McLeod of Denton and Lester Rivenbark of Asheboro. Both challengers filed on the day that filing began.

Like the two incumbents, McLeod and Rivenbark are listed as Republicans.

McDowell was first elected in November 2016. Kidd also was elected in 2016 and 2020.

For the 2024 ballot, only two of the five seats on the Randolph County board of commissioners will be voted on.

Republican David Craven of Asheboro has filed to keep his seat in the N.C. Senate for District 29.

Sitting N.C. Rep. Brian Biggs, a Republican from Trinity, has filed for House Seat 70.

For N.C. District Court Judge (District 37, Seat 5), Republican Barron Thompson of Asheboro has filed.

The primary will be held March 5.
