Monday, November 6, 2006

BENTON -- Barring a win by a write-in candidate, races for offices in Scott County were decided during the August primary.

Democrats with no opponents listed on the ballot are: Jamie Burger for presiding county commissioner; Pam Glastetter for circuit court clerk; Rita Milam for county clerk; Thomas R. Dirnberger, recorder of deeds; Paul R. Boyd, prosecuting attorney; Mark Hensley, collector of revenue; and Glenda K. Enderle, treasurer.

All are incumbents except for Burger who is presently serving as an associate county commissioner. The incumbent presiding commissioner, Martin Priggel, did not seek another term.

Scott Horman, who defeated incumbent David Mann in the Democratic primary election, is the sole candidate on the Scott County ballot for associate circuit judge for Division 5 and Democrat Hense Winchester is the only listed candidate for associate circuit judge for Division 4.

Some Scott County voters will also cast ballots in the race for the 160th District's state representative. Candidates are Republican Ellen Brandom and Democrat Larry Tetley.

Races for Mississippi County offices were also pretty much decided during the August primary election, except the race for recorder of deeds.

The Democratic incumbent recorder, Judy Rolwing, will face Republican Melinda Nelson for another term in office.

Leigh Ann Colson won the Democratic primary in August for the circuit court clerk position against the incumbent, Karen Turley.

All other county offices have only incumbents, all of which are Democrats, listed on the ballot. They are: Presiding County Commissioner Jim Blumenberg, County Clerk Hubert DeLay Jr., Collector of Revenue Faye P. Elliot, County Treasurer Sandra Smoot DeField and Prosecuting Attorney Darren Cann.

Also in Mississippi County, incumbent Lynn Brown, a Democrat, is the only candidate listed on the ballot for associate circuit judge for the 33rd Circuit Court.

Voters in both Scott and Mississippi counties will also cast ballots for circuit judge for the 33rd Circuit Court with David A. Dolan, a Democrat, the only candidate listed; and for a new state representative for the 161st District, a position for which Gary Branum, a Republican, and Steve Hodges, a Democrat, are running.
