Kill Devil Hills incumbents come together to announce reelection campaigns

In Kill Devil Hills, three incumbents have registered to seek reelection for second terms – commissioners Terry Gray and John Windley and Mayor Ben Sproul – and they released a joint statement to announce their intentions.

While Gray and Windley have served since 2017, the term for mayor in KDH is two years. Sproul was elected in 2019. “The three candidates coming together to support each other’s campaigns is reminiscent of the 2019 race when Sproul fielded visually similar yard signs with the other two current commissioners, Ivy Ingram and BJ McAvoy,” read the joint statement. “Over the last 18 months, the Kill Devil Hills Board of Commissioners has presented a remarkable penchant for crafting a shared vision for the town, with a high percentage of unanimous decisions despite pursuing innovative policies not seen in other local municipalities.”

Regarding the joint efforts for reelection, Gray remarked, “I am pleased with the positive decisions we have made that benefit the town. I am confident that continuing with unified leadership that is consistently responsive to residents priorities while demonstrating good stewardship of town finances will keep KDH on the best path forward.”

Windley echoed this sentiment saying, “From community appearance efforts, to investment in our parks, multi-use paths, and projects like our solar-powered crosswalk lighting, this board has proven to be very effective in pursuing shared goals for our town, and I am extremely pleased seek a continuation of these efforts with the current makeup of the board.”

The three candidates all filed with the Dare County Board of Elections on the first or second day of the filing period.

“My fellow board members are all here to serve our fellow citizens,” Sproul observed, “and that makes the work so much more productive and beneficial for everyone. I feel extremely fortunate to have come together so thoroughly as we continue to look for ways to improve the lives of our constituents, and like my colleagues, I would be honored to continue serving the people of Kill Devil Hills.”

Municipal elections will be held on November 2, 2021. Early voting dates and times have not yet been announced, according to the Board of Elections website.
