A third candidate, Phil Cromer, will vie for one of two Beaufort City Council seats up for grabs in the Nov. 4 general election.
Incumbent Donnie Beer and local business owner Stephen Murray previously filed to run. Candidates have until noon Aug. 15 to submit paperwork to City Hall.
City Council seats are filled in nonpartisan, at-large elections.
Cromer recently moved back to the Spanish Point neighborhood with his wife, Amelie, from Columbia. He spent the past 23 years as a risk-management consultant for the Municipal Association of South Carolina.
He previously worked for the Lowcountry Council of Government and served as the Ridgeland town administrator and Port Royal town manager.
