Several races in Daviess County contested

Several races in Daviess County are being contested in this election.

Here's a look at some of the decisions voters in Daviess County will be making when they head to the polls.

First up are two races for state representative.

For the 13th District, Democratic incumbent Jim Glenn will take on Independent Bill Barron.

For the 14th District, Republican Marian Turley will face off against House Majority Whip Democrat Tommy Thompson.

Voters will choose between two candidates to serve as Circuit Court Clerk for Daviess County.

That race is between Republican Susan Wedding Tierney and Democrat D. Jason Roberts.

Two races for seats on the board of education in Daviess County will be contested.

For the Third Educational District, voters will choose between incumbent Dianne Burns Mackey and challenger Gary Keller.

For the Fifth Educational District, voters will choose between incumbent Merritt Bates-Thomas and challenger Preston Peachee.

Finally, voters will select four candidates from a list of six to serve as Owensboro City Commissioners.

On the ballot for that race are current commissioners Roger Stacy and Jeff Sanford, along with Mayor Pro Tem Pam Smith-Wright.

Challenging these current elected officials for the position are Deborah May Nunley, Bob Glenn, and Greg Black.

James Lacy Kamuf recently withdrew from the commissioner race and has filed as a write-in candidate for mayor.

There will be signs altering voters that even though his name is still on the ballot, commissioner votes he may get won't be counted.
