Daviess County Voters to Choose Candidates in Upcoming County Races

election 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (5/14/14) — Voters heading to the polls in less than a week and those voting by absentee will choose the next slate of county officials from the pool of candidates on their particular party’s ballot.

In what’s considered by many to be the most important race in Daviess County, Republican challenger Gary Boswell is fighting to unseat Republican incumbent Al Mattingly for the position of Daviess County Judge/Executive. Because both candidates are registered as Republicans in the May 20 primary, only Republican voters can cast a ballot for either of them. No Democrats have filed for the position, so the winner of the primary will go on to be the county’s next Judge/Executive.

In other local races, Republican candidates Kevin Parker, Tom Morton, and James “Jim” O’Brien are vying for a county commissioner seat in the eastern district, while Alma Randolph, Jimmie Sapp, and Mike Koger are each looking to secure the Democrat nod for the post. The winner of those two races will face each other in the fall general election.

Rachel Pence Foster is facing off against Palmer Davis Dempsey for the job of property valuation administrator.

In the race for Western District Constable, Kris Crawford and Butch Grenier are battling for the Republican nomination, and the winner of that race will face off against the winner of the Democratic candidates, Scott Smith, Joseph Dean Chappell, Jerry Belcher, and Paul Westerfield.

Ray Westerfield and Jeffrey Williams are running against each other on the Democrat ticket for Constable in the central district.

Running in a nonpartisan race for judge of the court of appeals are Osi Onyekwuluje, Mark Flener, and Kelly Thompson.

Of course, Republican voters who turn out on Tuesday will also have a say in the hotly contested U.S. Senate race between Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin. McConnell, a career Senator and party leader has been embroiled in a heated battle between Republican challenger Matt Bevin and Democrat challenger Allison Lundergan Grimes. Grimes is the frontrunner for the Democrat nomination and is expected to face the winner of the Republican primary in the fall.

SurfKY News will provide updated coverage of the election Tuesday.
