Primary will not be held in Pulaski County this year
Pulaski County will not be holding a primary election this year in regards to the Monterey and Medaryville town councils.
The decision was made by the Pulaski County Election Board during a regular meeting on March 14.
The board decided that since Medaryville has no contested seats and no one is running for clerk-treasurer and since Monterey has chosen to hold a convention there is no reason to hold a primary election.
Those who have filed for the Monterey Town Council include democrats Jim Fleury and Doug Denton. Fleury and Denton are current town councilmen. Current clerk-treasurer Linda McCune has also refiled for the seat. Those who are interested in being a member of the council have until Aug. 1 to file because the town is holding a convention.
In Medaryville, current council members Robert Schultz (R), Suzanna Wilcoxon (R) and Raymond Saltsman Sr. (R) have refiled for the one-year term. Judy Harwood (D) has also filed for a seat. Harwood is the current clerk-treasurer but she is retiring from the position. At this time no one has filed for the clerk-treasurer seat.
The Medaryville term for one-year will happen so the town election will be on the same cycle as the presidential election.
The election board met on April 1 and formally approved the resolution. They then presented it to the Pulaski County Commissioners.
