A River Country Journal story earlier this week indicated the August 7th primary election in the City of Three Rivers would include a four-way contest for Second District commissioner. That, indeed, appeared to be the prospect at that time with passage of the 4 p.m. Tuesday (May 15) deadline for candidates to file nominating petitions. Four persons did so, thus prompting the report about voting August 7th to narrow the field of candidates from four to two for the general election on November 6th.
City Clerk Lindsay Howes reports that two of the candidates who filed for Second District commissioner – Greg Richman and Linda Gearhart – “did not have sufficient petitions to be on the ballot. So there will not be an August primary for any of the City Commission seats.”
Here’s the lineup for the November general election in regard to seats on the Three Rivers City Commission:
Second District commissioner (two-year term):
- Elbert Foster, 819 South Main Street (incumbent)
- Alison Haigh, 609 Madison Street
Third District commissioner (one-year term):
- Diane Haley-Clay, 327 South Douglas Avenue
- Larry Matson, 627 South Constantine Street (incumbent)
Fourth District commissioner (two-year term):
- Carolyn McNary, 420 Fifth Avenue (incumbent)
At-Large commissioner (two-year term):
- Daryl Griffith, 614 Pine Street (incumbent).
