A last-day barrage of candidates created several contested races for local offices in the May 6 primary election, but a few candidates are guaranteed they'll be on the Nov. 4 ballot.
Boone County Clerk Penny Bogan said she expected several people would wait until nearly the last day -- some, in fact, did -- before filing candidate paperwork.
Incumbent Boone County Prosecutor Todd J. Meyer, Lebanon, is unopposed in the GOP primary, as are incumbent Superior Court I Judge Matthew Kincaid, Lebanon, and county Assessor Lisa Garoffolo, Lebanon. Jessica A. Fouts, Lebanon, is unopposed for the GOP nomination for county clerk; Bogan is in her second term and cannot run again.
Sheriff Ken Campbell, Lebanon, who also is concluding the second of two terms, Friday entered the GOP primary for the County Council District 3 seat being vacated by incumbent Brent Wheat. Campbell, who filed Friday morning, is unopposed for the nomination.
