GREENFIELD — A rush of last-minute candidate filings Friday will make for plenty of contested local races in the May 6 primary election.
Friday was the deadline for candidates to sign up for the primary ballot, and there are seven contested county races and four township races – all on the Republican ballot.
Filing in the final hours were Republicans Jeannine Gray, Carolyn Flynn and Bruce Fleming for Hancock County Council and Richard Walker for Hancock County commissioner.
That makes for contested races for the county commissioner seat; three county council seats; county prosecutor; sheriff; and clerk.
