SUMMERFIELD, N.C. — Former Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes who lost his reelection for Guilford County Sheriff in 2017 to Danny Rogers, threw his hat in the ring this year as a candidate for Mayor of Summerfield and WON. 

BJ Barnes beat candidate Danny Nelson.

Barnes released this statement after winning:

"I'm looking forward to bringing some civility and professionalism back to Summerfield. It's been lacking as of late. Looking forward to working with all the folks who ran. The ones who've lost and the ones who've won. Summerfield is a great little community and we're gonna prove that we are."

Tuesday, November 5 was decision day across North Carolina. Unlike the year for our Governor and the presidential race, the turnout for municipal races is usually low.
