Ballot positions set for May
In Feb. 4 Issue

In the drawing for positions on that ballot last Thursday at the clerk's office for the May party primaries here were the results.

As there was only one person filing for County Clerk, Lisha R. Popplewell, the Republican incumbent, will not be on the ballot until November.

For Sheriff, Republican incumbent Larry Bennett is first on the ballot followed by Tim Pierce (R). James Eugene Fetty is the only listing under the Democrats so his name passes through to the November ballot as all unopposed party candidates will.

Several filed for Property Valuation Administrator, but Brook Bunch, the Democrat presently appointed to fill an expired term has announced that she has withdrawn from the race.

The order for the May ballot in that race will be Kim Byrom (R) Tim Popplewell (R), Anthony Todd Carnes (R), and again the Democrat Roger Black will be on the November ballot.

In the County Judge-Executive primary Ralph Creech (R) will be listed followed by incumbent Mickey Garner, with Gary D. Robertson challenging the winner in November.

Running for County Attorney are Republican incumbent Mark McGaha, who will be fist on the ballot, and Kevin Shearer (R). The winner will face Jeffery T. Loy in November.

In the race for Coroner both the Republican incumbent Larry Skaggs and challenger Bill W. Carroll, (D), will face off in the general election this fall.

Running for Jailer is Democrat Tim Glover who will face either David R. Bernard, first on the ballot, Bobby S. Dunbar or the third man on the ballot in May, Robert Stanton, (R).

The race for County Surveyor has one each of both parties and so passing on to the fall election are Michael Kevin Syphax (D), and Robert "Bobby" Smith (R).

Several of the magisterial races are crowded, with only District 5 having a pass in the primary. Following are magisterial candidates in the order they will appear on the ballot.
