Fall election field now set

July 10, 2012

Mary Beery

    No candidates were named to fill vacancies for county offices on the November general election ballot, according to an announcement Monday by Rob Noetzel, chairman of the Adams County Republican Party.
    Republicans and Democrats had until June 30 to fill any openings in their slate of candidates for the fall. July 2 was the deadline for any independent candidates to file petitions with the clerk of courts office.
    Democrats had four vacancies for major local offices.
    With no opposition this fall, Republican county commissioners Doug Bauman and Kim Fruechte get new four-year terms starting January 1, when Republican Mary Beery will become county auditor and Republican Tom Krueckeberg the county treasurer.
    Current auditor Bill Borne and current treasurer Rex Moore were not allowed by law to seek new terms after having served two each.
    Following is the way the local races will be seen on the ballot next November.
