Democrats field commissioner candidate

By Press Release

A Democratic Party candidate has submitted necessary paperwork to the county and will appear on the primary and general election ballots as a candidate for Delta County Commissioner District 2, the elections department reports.

Travis Mills, a resident of Cedaredge, was named by the local Democratic Party vacancy committee as the chosen District 2 candidate for the party at its assembly last month.

The county elections department also reports that Nancy Hovde of Cedaredge, a Repubican candidate for District 2 county commissioner, had not submitted petition signatures by Monday, the deadline to make the primary ballot. That means the primary ballot will have just one local contested race, between Mark Roeber and Roger Bentley in District 3.

Don Suppes is the lone Republican candidate for the District 2 county commissioner seat; Mills and Jere Lowe are the Democratic candidates for District 2 and District 3, respectively. The primary will be held June 28.
