Another challenger has entered the District 3 Commissioner race in Perkins County

Filing as an incumbent for the seat last week was Darrell Pierce. 

Pierce is best known for his role as a member on Grant City Council.  

His term on the city council is about to end. County Clerk Rita Long said that because he is already an elected official, in order to file for a different office, he had to file as an incumbent and meet the filing deadline of Feb. 16.

Pierce will be running against incumbent James Deaver and non-incumbents Ted Deaver  and John Woodmancy for the commissioner seat. 

Another new filing is that of Mark Heil for a seat on the Village of Madrid Board of Trustees. Heil is an incumbent, as is Michelle Ross who has filed. Two seats on the board are up for election.

Scott Osler has filed as a non-incumbent for Perkins County Schools Board of Education, joining non-incumbent Jill Pelster who filed earlier. 

Three candidates will be elected to the school board. Incumbents are Dan Hughes, Marian Robertson and Kent Kroeker, none of whom has filed.
