By CANDY NEAL
County voters will have several leadership choices on the Nov. 6 general election ballot, as many county positions have a Republican and Democratic candidate running.
As for the May 8 primary election, Birdseye voters selecting a Democratic ballot will see the most interesting primary races. They will decide which three Birdseye Town Council candidates will move on to the fall election. Their four choices are Mary Ann Cummings, Clyde Huff, Lisa Huff, and Roy Partenheimer. The two candidates on the Republican ticket — Priscilla Atkins, Bret Eckert — will automatically move on to the fall election.
Democrat voters in Birdseye will also choose a Democratic candidate for clerk. Incumbent Brittany Schepers and current town Councilwoman Kelly Wiseman are running for the seat.
Voters will also have some choices in primary races for statewide and national seats.
Republican voters will choose Mike Braun, Luke Messer (Allen Lucas Messer) or Todd Rokita to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly for U.S. senator in the November election; they will also select incumbent Larry Bucshon, Richard Moss or Rachel Covington to run for the District 8 U.S. representative seat in the fall.
Democratic voters will select either Ron Drake or William Tanoos to run for the District 8 U.S. representative seat; they will also choose Dennis Tedrow or Joseph Lannan to go on to the general election for the District 63 state representative seat.
