— After longtime commissioner Ira Fuller bowed out of Wendell’s town board race in September, it became an easy ride for three candidates campaigning for an equal number of open seats.

Incumbent Ginna Gray, local optometrist Jon Lutz and John Boyette will take Wendell’s three open seats. Lutz and Boyette have no previous experience in government. Boyette and Gray were both endoresed by the Wake County Republican Party, though Boyette declined their endorsement.
