So many races…but so few candidates.
The Chairman of the Democratic Party in Grant County is having a difficult time trying to fill spots on the ballot for the May Primary. In fact, Terry Stodghill can find almost no one.
Outside of a few people in a few township positions and a few on the state and federal level, there are no Democrats currently on the ballot in Grant County for the May Primary.
Terry Stodghill says older candidates are retiring and young folks don’t want to get involved.
Stodghill says the key races that he wants to find a candidate for at this point are for Center Township Trustee and the Grant County Clerk. But so far, he’s had no takers.
The deadline to file to run in the May Primary is February 9th. Stodghill says they could stiull slate candidates after that date.
