Butler files for re-election

An extension for the candidate filing period became a little less likely today when two people, one in Henderson and one in Middleburg, completed their paperwork to run in the fall municipal elections. William C. Abbott Jr. became the first candidate of any kind in Middleburg, where he is hoping to join the three-person Board of Commissioners. But overshadowing his entry is Harriette Butler’s decision to seek re-election to the ward seat in Henderson’s Ward 2. We failed to catch Butler to ask whether she is living in Ward 2 or will be come Election Day, Oct. 11. She was living in her Ward 3 business office during the past two elections.
