According to Washington County Clerk Stephanie Rockey, the Democratic party has filled three ballot vacancies for the 2019 Municipal General election.
Last week filings were:
- Richard Longworth, City Council- Dist. 1
- Kevin Stewart- City Clerk-Treasurer
Longworth ran in the spring election for Mayor against William “Bill” Ackerman. Ackerman defeated Longworth 124 to 49 to win the Democrat nomination to run for Mayor in the fall against Justin Greene.
Both have been processed and certified.
Stewart will face Republican Incumbent Sally Hattabaugh in November.
Longworth will be challenging Republican Incumbent Dan Libka.
In late May, Anthony Scifres was appointed to fill Wally Terkhorn’s office vacancy after Terkorn’s death.
At that point, Rockey said, Scifres was was appointed to fill the ballot vacancy for City Council, Dist. 4- Dem. for the General Election.
