Two aldermen file for New Bern mayor

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

In New Bern, two city aldermen are kicking off their campaign for mayor.

On Monday first ward alderman Sabrina Bengel and sixth ward alderman Dana Outlaw filed paperwork to run for mayor.

They're competing to replace current mayor Lee Wilson Bettis, who announced in February he won't seek a second term.

In May, Bettis was charged with DWI and took a one month leave of absence.

Both aldermen say the high electric rates in New Bern are a big problem they would address as mayor.

"We need somebody who's engaged, who's committed, who understands the issues, who's willing to be there when necessary," said Ald. Bengel. "That's what I've always wanted to do. Go to work."

"I think New Bern needs as a leader somebody who will quit dodging the hard issues and taking on the easy issues. The easy ones are easy to vote on," said Ald. Outlaw.

Third ward alderman Denny Bucher says he plans to file for mayor Tuesday around noon.
