Lauderdale seeking fifth term as county’s District 4 supervisor

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, January 29, 2003

The Warren County Board of Supervisors’ longest-serving member filed qualifying papers Tuesday to run for a fifth term from District 4.

Bill Lauderdale, 55, on the board since 1984, will face at least two first-time office-seekers in the Nov. 4 general election. Sixth-grade teacher Carl Flanders, 33, and business owner Reginald King, 56, had already filed to run for the post.

All three have filed as independent candidates, meaning their names will not appear on Aug. 5 party primary ballots.
