Rene Flowers wins District 7 Commission Primary

The competitive District 7 commission primary has been decided. School Board member Rene Flowers steamrolled through state rep. Wengay Newton and former rep. Frank Peterman Junior, attracting 52% of the vote. She will now face NPA Maria Scruggs and write-in candidate Anthony Hart in the November 3rd general election.

Rene Flowers – 51.66%

Wengay Newton – 32.83%
