I am not running for Bladen County sheriff or Bladen County commissioner, which was my second choice.
I have instead been hired recently to be the front man and top local aide by a N.C. state senator for his re-election campaign.
I am supporting Russell Priest for his re-election bid as Bladen County commissioner and ANYBODY but Sheriff Pentis Benston for Bladen County sheriff.
Donald Lee Melvin Sr.
