Stage is set for May 8 primary

The County Line

There are races for county council in District 1 where incumbent Fred Glynn is being challenged by Sue Maki, in District 3 where incumbent Steve Schwartz faces Mark Hall, and in District 4 where Ken Alexander, Sheldon Barnes, Christine Pauley and Rick Sharp are seeking to succeed retiring Councilman Paul Ayers.

Hamilton County Commissioner Christine Altman will be challenged by Matt Milam in the District 1 race.

A competitive race is seen for the open state representative seat being vacated by Rep. Richardson. It features Brad Beaver, Garen Bragg, Charles Goodrich and Gregory O’Connor.

Contests elsewhere in the county find State Sen. Mike Delph being challenged by Corrie Meyer, and State Rep. Jerry Torr facing Tom Linkmeyer.

At the township level, there are GOP primary contests between Chris Miller and Robyn Cook for Jackson Township trustee, Fall Creek Township between Doug Allman and Ben Slota for trustee and in Washington Township Marla Ailor will run against Daniel Carey Tolan.

While Democrats have not filled at the top of their primary ballot, numerous candidates for precinct committeeman and state convention delegate have filed. But, these are party positions and actually not public offices. Republicans also have filed in large numbers for their state convention, but GOP precinct committeeman posts were filled two years ago and not up for election this year.

See the final list of all candidates running for office below.
