Olaf (Bud) Thorsen edged out current Brunswick County Board of Education member Ray Gilbert and candidate Tracey Danka, securing the Republican nomination for District 1 of Brunswick County Board of Education.

Thorsen, 50, served on the Board of Education from 1994-2004, and served as board chairman from 2000-2002.

“I hope to bring my experience back to that board,” Thorsen said. “I’m energized, and I know I’ve got the qualifications and the background. I look forward to being on the board again.”
