Rocky Mount Town Councilman Robert L. "Bobby" Moyer will seek another four-year term on town council in the May 6 municipal election.
Moyer is retired and served as a town police officer for 13 years. He also owned his own business, Seamless Guttering, for more than two decades.
In his bid for re-election, Moyer said he will be a conservative voice on council and make responsible decisions for the citizens.
"I have been told the economy is improving. However, I fail to see it," he said. "I find my income is about the same, and my cost of living is more each month. How can we ask people to pay more taxes or increase costs for services when they are struggling every day to provide for their family's basic needs?"
If elected, this will be Moyer's second four-year term on town council.
In Rocky Mount, three council seats are up for election on May 6. Those seats are now held by Moyer, Bobby Cundiff and Jerry Greer. Cundiff has announced that he will seek another term. Also, Jon Snead has announced he will run for a seat on council. Greer has indicated he will run again, but he has not made an official announcement.
Mayor Steve Angle has also announced he will seek another four-year term.
The deadline to file for the May election was 7 p.m. Tuesday.
