Not Enough Evidence For Challenge To Councilman’s Residency

The challenge to a Goldsboro City Council member’s residency has been dismissed.

According to Wayne County Board of Elections Director Dane Beavers, the board decided to not pursue the challenge regarding District 1 council member Antonio Williams’ residency.

The Board of Elections found there was not enough evidence to substantiate the claim that Williams did not reside within the district he represents on the Goldsboro City Council.

In April, the City of Goldsboro received an anonymous later alleging Williams was not living within District 1.

Williams has updated his voter registration to an address at 143 N. Center Street.

The challenge to Williams’ residency within District 1 was officially filed by Goldsboro resident Zack Lilly who still has the opportunity to appeal the decision at the state Board of Elections.
