Three candidates threw their hat in the ring today for this year’s Wilmington City Council elections.

Incumbents Jim Quinn and Earl Sheridan signed the line for re-election while Charlie Rivenbark will once again join the race after taking a few years off.

Sheridan and Rivenbark used the announcement as an opportunity to raise some excitement for their campaigns. Quinn took a much quieter approach.

Each of these candidates has a list he’d like to accomplish.

“The convention center is not open yet, there’s still some work to be done there. The cape fear public utility authority is up and running, but there’s some work to be done there,” Quinn said.

Sheridan stated, “We need more economic development, affordable housing, things of this nature, so these are some things that need to be done, and I want to take four more years and see what I can accomplish with them.”

“Make the tough decisions, not going along just to get along, and trying to copy some of the successes we had from ’93 to 2001,” said Rivenbark.
