Election heats up with more candidates

The 2012 election season continues to prove an exciting one with several more announcements over the past week. Adam Terry, a lieutenant at the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, has filed his letter of intent to seek the sheriff’s post. He is running with no party affiliation. Terry will be on the general election ballot Nov. 6 with Poney B. Adams (R), James “Jimmy” Baggett (NPA), Kenneth B. Futch (NPA), and Earl Hunt (NPA), as well as the winner of the democratic primary between Roman Wood and Glenn Kimbrel. Richmond Broward Pitts (NPA) filed his intent to run for Calhoun County Tax Collector. Pitts will face the winner of the democratic primary between incumbent Becky Trickey-Smith and Ruby K. Clark. Lee Brown has filed his intent to run for county commissioner in district 1. He is running as a democrat and will go up against Fred D. Blankenship and Nathan Goodman in the democratic primary. Glenn A. Byler announced his intent to run as a republican, but withdrew later in the week due to conflicts with his job. The top vote getter in the democratic primary will face Jerry Guilford (R) and James Grover (NPA) in the general election. Calhoun County Judge Kevin Grover will remain in office another term as he has been unopposed. Friday at noon was the last day for any candidates to qualify in judicial races.
