The Town of Carrboro could be seeing another term from Aldermen member Damon Seils this local election season.
Seils announced on Twitter Thursday morning that he will seek re-election for the Board of Aldermen this fall. He currently serves as mayor pro tem, and as a chairperson and a representative of the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization.
“My enthusiasm for Carrboro is as strong as ever,” Seils said in a press release. “I have had the privilege of working with neighbors and community organizations on a wide variety of issues, and have built a reputation among colleagues and community members as a leader who takes a fair, thoughtful approach to both policy and process.”
Seils was first elected to the Board in 2013 and re-elected in 2015. Prior to serving on the Board, Seils served twice as chairperson of the Carrboro Planning Board and once on the Town’s Greenways Commission.
He said that earlier in his term, he helped revive the Board’s efforts to bring Carrboro and its lowest paid employees to a certified living wage.
