It’s been five months since Bevan Foster won the Democratic Primary Election for the District 3 seat on the Wayne County Board of Commissioners.
However, that victory was immediately marred by an election protest alleging Foster did not reside at his registered District 3 address of 610 Deveraux Street in Goldsboro.
The fight over the validity of the election protest and Foster’s residence have ping-ponged back and forth between the Wayne County and state board of elections.
On July 31st, the State Board of Elections reversed the local ruling and decided Foster was eligible to run for the District 3 position.
Friday afternoon, the Wayne County Board of Elections made it official by certifying the election results from the March 3rd District 3 Democratic Primary that Foster won.
Wayne County Elections Director Anne Risku explained no further appeals had been filed in the matter, clearing the way for certification of the results.
Foster will be running unopposed on the November ballot.
Barring a successful write-in campaign from a challenger, Foster will become the next District 3 Commissioner on the Wayne County Board.
