Municipalities set ballots for April

Richmond may be the focus of attention in April’s municipal elections because most races are contested.
The same cannot be said for many of the seats in other towns throughout the county.
Barring a write-in candidate stepping up, the city of Hardin has decided who will be the next leaders.
Current Mayor Bob McCorkendale is seeking another term along with Alderwoman Barbara Schmidt. Alderman Aaron Summers has decided not to seek another term and will be replaced by Janice Anderson.
The same situation exists in Wood Heights. Mayor John Allen is unopposed along with Aldermen Frank DaVitt and Mathew Bransky.
In Lawson, James Adams will run unopposed for his Ward I seat. Adams was originally appointed to the position. In Ward II, current Councilwoman Marsha Petty will face Vester Cates.
In Orrick, the April election will have some choices for voters.
Mayor Shirley Taylor has filed for re-election and will be opposed by Marilin Butler and Jeff Haynes. Aldermen Christie McGlothlin and Zoe Davis will have to beat out a pool of candidates seeking their seats. Cindy Lampton, Todd Wyse, Aaron Pigg, John Scarborough, Tiffany Gooch and Deanna Hufford will try to unseat one of the incumbents.
