Two seats on Leland Town Council are up for election this year. Councilman Michael Callahan’s seat expires and he did not file for reelection. Incumbent Bob Campbell has filed for reelection. Campbell, along with Harmati and two additional challengers — Rick Paxton and Veronica Carter — will appear on November’s ballot.

According to a press release provided to Port City Daily, Harmati has extensive accounting experience with the U.S. Army, Navy Reserve, and private sector. He has lived in North Carolina since 1970 and has been a Leland resident since 2001, according to his release.

Harmati’s core platforms for Leland Town Council include supporting constitutional rights, public safety, charter schools, and quality education.

Author’s note: Port City Daily will run in-depth candidate features later in the campaign season. Until then, candidate announcements sent to Port City Daily will be briefly featured.
