Political season kicks off with free chili supper

By Mac Shadix

Four Leon County office holders: County Judge Byron Ryder, District Clerk Beverly Wilson, Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Lori Reid and County Commissioner David Ferguson all face a challenger for their position in this years Republican primary. Sandy Lumley has filed for Commissioner of Precinct 2, Gary Danford is running for County Judge, Cassandra Noey is seeking the job of District Clerk and Mark Taylor has filed for Precinct 1 J.P. With the competition for these positions the political season is about to become active.

A free chili supper and a meet the incumbents get together will be held at Lone Star Community Center. It will begin at 5 pm on January 20 and feature the challengers for the positions. You can drop by, meet the candidates, and enjoy a bowl of chili at the same time. Anyone wishing to attend will be welcome.

Several more events are being planned for Hilltop Lakes and Centerville, but their dates and times have not yet been firmed up.

Some other important dates for the upcoming elections are: The last day to register to vote is February 5. First day of early voting is February 20.

Applications for ballots by mail must be received by February 23. March 2 and the last day of early voting will be Friday, March 2.

Election day for the first primary will be on March 6th. with voting from 7am until 7pm. As of January 8th there are 10,919 registered voters in Leon County. That is a very good registration for a county our size, but it is meaningless until you cast your ballot.
