Five considering bids for county offices

Five Republicans have already expressed interest in running for county-level races in next year’s primary election, Boone County Clerk Penny Bogan said.

While formal declarations of intent to run for office can’t be filed until Jan. 7, a candidate may form an organizing committee, to raise money and explore the feasibility of running.

Michael T. Nielsen, rural Lebanon, and Joseph Dennemann, rural Zionsville, both are running for Boone County Sheriff. Nielsen is a Boone County Sheriff’s Office major; Dennemann is a Zionsville police officer. Nielsen opened his committee on Feb. 5; Dennemann filed on July 12.

Incumbent Sheriff Ken Campbell is in his second term; state law prohibits the sheriff, and certain other county office-holders, from running for a third consecutive term.

Bruce Petit, Zionsville, and James R. Holden, Zionsville, have formed exploratory committees in the race for Boone Superior Court II judge; both filed their declarations on July 24. Incumbent Judge Rebecca McClure has said she will not seek re-election.

Jessica Jo Fouts, Lebanon, filed her exploratory committee paperwork on April 16; she is considering running for Boone County Clerk. Bogan is also in her second term and under law cannot run for a third.

The Indiana Election Division of the Secretary of State’s office has set filing and other deadlines for next year’s elections. Candidates for major party primaries have from Jan. 7 to noon Feb. 8 to file. The primary election is May 6, the general election Nov. 4.
