Sheriff candidates make case for open post

by Joseph Back

Polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday August 9, with Stanley voters asked to vote at the Community Center. With that in mind, three candidates are making the case for why you should choose them this primary.

All three want to be sheriu, but there are just two spots on the November ballot. Chris Kowalczyk is assured a spot, running unopposed on the Democratic ticket.

Facing ou at the primary for the chance to meet Kowalczyk on the November ballot are Dan Marcon and Travis Hakes, both Republicans.

The Sheriu’s post is among county ovces which is tied to a party, others being clerk of circuit court (Nate Seidl v. Karen Hepler come November) and Coroner, for which Ron Patten is running unopposed.

As to the case for each, it’s contained inside on page 11, following summaries of several other primary ballot candidates on pages 8, 9, and 10.

Vote informed—and remember, the polls open at 7 a.m. Tuesday August 9, remaining open until 8 p.m.

Travis Hakes (Sheriff – Republican)
