Only four file to be on ballot across 10 nonpartisan races
So far, only four candidates have filed for any of the 10 nonpartisan races on the ballot in this fall's election, and all four are incumbents.
No one has filed for the positions of the city of Martin's mayor, the District 5 school board or the city councils of Allen, Martin, Wayland and Wheelwright. In school board races, Chairman Jeff Stumbo is seeking reelection in District 3, and Rhonda Turner Meade is seeking to retain her seat in District 4. Tim Cooley is the only person to have filed for Prestonsburg City Council. Lenville Martin is the only person to have filed for Soil and Water Conservation District.
Candidates have until 4 p.m., August 14, to declare for nonpartisan races on the November ballot.
