Randall Williams, a Raleigh physician known for his humanitarian work in Iraq, Afghanistan and Haiti, will run for mayor this fall, saying his blend of local roots and global experience has prepared him for the city’s highest office.
Williams described himself as a fiscal conservative and touted backing from former mayors Tom Fetzer and Paul Coble, leading Republican figures in Raleigh politics for much of the 1990s.
Williams is the third candidate to declare for the seat being vacated by Charles Meeker. The others are businesswoman Billie Redmond and current Councilwoman Nancy McFarlane.
