May 4—BLUEFIELD — Bluefield's municipal election is set for June 1 with three districts representing City Board on the ballot.

Two of those districts are contested.

In District I, incumbent Barbara Thompson Smith is being challenged by three candidates: Garry D. Moore Sr., Danny Hampton and Treyvon Shaun Simmons.

In District III, Daniel Wells, who was recently appointed to the seat when Robb Williams resigned after moving to Princeton, is facing Dassa Giles, Kyle Groye and Greg Saunders.

The only incumbent to face no opposition is Mayor Ron Martin, who represents District II.

The two at-large city board seats, held by Peter Taylor and Matt Knowles, are not up for reelection until 2023.
