Six candidates seeking commissioner positions
A three-way Republican race for one of the county commissioner positions will be the highlight of the May 7 primary election in Vinton County.

There are three county-level elected offices on the line in Vinton County in the 2018 election, two of the three county commissioner seats and the county auditor's position. Many of the other county elected offices will be on the line in the 2020 election cycle.

The only contested race in the 2018 primary election is on the Republican ballot for the unexpired term of the county commissioner's seat which begins Jan. 2. Jim Satory is currently holding that seat as he was appointed last year by the Vinton County Republican Central Committee to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Mike Bledsoe, who was elected to a 4-year term in the 2016 election.

Satory, who will serve through at least the end of 2018, is one of three GOP candidates running for the remainder of the unexpired term which covers 2019 and 2020. However, he will have opposition in the primary election from fellow Republican candidates William Wellman and Jeremiah Jones.

Democrat Mark Anthony Walker is also running for same commissioner's position, but is unopposed in the primary.

Republican incumbent County Commissioner Tim Eberts is unopposed in the primary for re-election to the Jan. 1 term, but will face opposition in November's general election from Democrat Nick Rupert who is also unopposed in the primary.

As of the present, Republican incumbent County Auditor Cindy Waugh has a free ride to re-election as she has no opposition from fellow Republicans or from the Democrats.

However, there is still the opportunity for other candidates to file for any of the county-level offices as the deadline for independent candidates is not until May 6, the day before the primary election. Write-in candidates can file even later in the year.

Also, there will be only two levies on the primary-election ballot in Vinton County and both will be in Jackson Township where voters will decide the merits of a 1-mill, 5-year replacement levy for fire protection and a 1-mill, 5-year renewal levy for cemetery services.
