I have heard of people not being interested in politics, but an entire town that can't find anyone to run for mayor? Apparently the job of mayor in one small town is so unappealing that they can't find a single candidate.
The races for mayor and three commission seats are wide open in the small North Carolina town of Tar Heel — because no one bothered to run. No one has registered as a candidate for the fall elections in the Bladen County town. The story was first reported by WECT-TV.
