Three more West Point residents have now submitted their declaration of intent to run this May for elected offices in the city of West Point.
Ward 2 Selectman Homer Cannon filled out his statement of intent Wednesday to rerun for the post of Ward 2 selectman, and William W. Young turned in his declaration to City Hall of intent to run for the office of Ward 1 selectman. Resident A.C. House also submitted his qualifying paperwork in anticipation for running for the post of Ward 4 selectman.
Each of these three candidates are running democrat.
With the withdrawal from the mayoral race last week by West Point Mayor Scott Ross, the total number of 2013 municipal qualifiers is 12.
The following is a list of candidates who have intentions to run in the May 7 Primary Election, but these names have not yet been certified by the West Point Municipal Election Commission to be placed on the ballot:
• Keith McBrayer – Ward 4 selectman qualifier
• Jasper Pittman – Ward 5 selectman qualifier
• Charles Collins – Ward 3 selectman qualifier
• Jimmy Clark – Ward 3 selectman qualifier

• Darlene Cox – Mayoral qualifier
• Robbie Robinson – Mayoral qualifier
• Homer Cannon – Ward 2 selectman qualifier
• William W. Young – Ward 1 selectman qualifier
• A.C. House – Ward 4 selectman qualifier
The qualifying period remains open through March 8 after which time the Municipal Election Commission will review all qualifiers and approve or disapprove their names for the ballot. To qualify, residents of West Point may fill out a statement of intent at City Hall and pay a $10 filing fee. Those wishing to run as an independent candidate must submit a petition at City Hall by March 8 and the petition must have at least 50 signatures.
