Many constable positions uncontested
Placeholder Image
With over a month still to go before deadline falls, a third of the county’s constable spots are still uncontested although there are candidates for each of the 12 unpaid state positions.Unlike most local offices, for which deadline fell this past Thursday, the constable position has no party primary and therefore has its qualifying deadline set with that of school board and state representative at noon April 3. Elections for the positions will be held as part of the General Election in August.The potentially contested seats thus far, meaning those for which more than one possible candidate has picked up qualifying papers, include the 10th District where Larry W. Harris is set to take on Kenneth L. King. Next door in the 11th District it would appear to be Raymond “Ramie” Roberts facing Mark A. Stewart.
