County Clerk urges candidates to file now

Boone County Clerk Penny Bogan is not accustomed to worrying about the weather in February. Her concerns about inclement weather are usually reserved for election days.

But forecasts that at least one, and possibly two, more winter storms could smack the county this week have Bogan urging anyone thinking of running for office to file their paperwork now.

Noon Friday, Feb. 7, is the deadline for anyone wanting to run for either the Democratic or Republican party nominations in the November election. Bogan has said she anticipates a last-minute rush of candidates for county-level offices.

The National Weather Service Monday afternoon, Feb. 3, issued a winter storm warning for Boone County with the potential of 7 to 10 inches of snow that would make roads impassable. There is also the possibility of winds that could cause significant drifts, According to the NWS office in Indianapolis.A long-range forecast includes the potential for another snow storm Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7 and Feb. 8.

If conditions through Wednesday, Feb. 5, deteriorate to the point the county commissioners place the county under a red-level travel advisory, the courthouse would be closed, Bogan said.“We’ve already had phone calls from people needing to know what to do if we’re closed on Friday,” she said.

If her office is closed one or more days this week, the election filing deadline would by state law be pushed to noon of “the next day we’re actually open for business,” Bogan said.“I want to make sure everybody knows before the deadline,” she said. “My suggestion is to get in as soon as possible.”In the latest filing, Jonathan Hauser, Lebanon, on Friday, Jan. 31, submitted paperwork to enter the Republican Party primary for county surveyor. Incumbent Ken Hedge filed his candidacy on Jan. 8, the first day filing was open.
