Races for several county offices will be contested in the May primary to decide who will run in the fall General Election.
With the announcement that County Commissioner George Bachman won’t seek another term as the District 2 representative, two Republicans have filed to seek the party nomination. Current Council President Jac Price will go up against Don Owsley in May.
The winner in the Primary will go up against Democrat Mary Mynhier. Mynhier ran against Bachman in the last election, falling just a few votes short of Bachman.
Four Republicans have filed to run for LaGrange County Council Member At Large. Incumbents Michael Strawser and Steven McKowen will vie with Michael Sutter and Benjamin Taylor for the three available seats on the county council.
Two Republicans will be on the Primary ballot for Clerk of the Circuit Court. Either Bonnie Brown or June Brown will end up running against Democratic candidate Suellyn Mickem in November.
The LaGrange County Recorder race will be determined in November, as each party had only one candidate file. Jennifer McBride (R) will face Pamela Farber (D).
Vonda Akey (R) was the lone candidate to file for the LaGrange County Treasurer post.
