New Hanover GOP Chairman and Officers Call Out Dishonest Campaign Tactics

Wilmington, NC – The New Hanover County GOP Chairman and Officers issued a statement today demanding whoever is perpetrating these dishonest and repulsive campaign tactics to cease and desist immediately.

Within the past week, homemade signs with disgusting and untrue statements have been erected in front of schools and churches in an attempt to discredit a front running female GOP candidate for a seat on the New Hanover County Commission. In addition, signs paid for and erected by the Kusek campaign were stolen under the cover of darkness.

These cowardly acts have no business in politics. These are nothing more than childish individuals who don’t have the moral fortitude and intelligence to conduct a fair and honest race.

Those affixing their names to this release are Michael Franklin, Chairman, Pete Divoky, First Vice-Chairman, Densay Sengsoulavong, Vice-Chairman, Kait Baker, Secretary and Gabrielle Barone, Treasurer.

Wilmington, NC – On Thursday, October 6th, 2016 Members of the Executive Committees of the Pender and New Hanover County Republican Parties for Judicial District 5B voted to endorse Kent Harrell in the judicial race for Superior Court Judge District 5B.

District 5B includes most of Pender County and a northern section of New Hanover County. The vacancy followed the announced retirement of long-serving Superior Court Judge W. Allen Cobb, Jr. in the summer of 2016 after serving over 25 years on the bench.

Harrell’s campaign website states “I have devoted my life to service to this community and believe that serving as the Superior Court Judge for this district is an opportunity to use my abilities and gifts to continue to serve in a role that will impact lives for many years to come.”

Kent Harrell is an attorney in private practice with twenty years of experience in criminal and civil litigation. Harrell was recognized in 2014 as a Leader in the Law for the State of North Carolina by North Carolina Lawyers Weekly, a statewide legal publication, and was also recognized in 2013 as the Pender County Volunteer Citizen of the Year.   

Mr. Harrell serves on the Executive Board for the Cape Fear Council of the Boy Scouts of America, is District Chairman for Pender and northern New Hanover County, has been recognized as Cub Scout Leader of the Year and serves on the Troop Committee for Troop 242 in Burgaw. He has also served on the board of the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council in Pender County for over ten years and is actively involved in the Teen Court program.  

Mr. Harrell chairs the scholarship committee for the Burgaw Rotary Club and serves as the club’s liaison for the Rotary Youth Leadership Conference for high school juniors. He serves on the Parent Advisory Council and the Athletic Booster Club board for Heide Trask High School, and has been a coach and sponsor of youth sports programs in the community for many years.  Kent and his wife Mandy, a school counselor in the Pender County School System have been married for 21 years and they have two children, ages 16 and 14.
