No election qualifiers yet

Staff Writer

A week after the qualifying window opened for two local leadership seats, no one has yet to throw their name into the arena.
According to Grenada County Circuit Clerk Michele Redditt-Garcia, qualifying papers are available for anyone seeking to run for District Four School Board Seat and the District Four Election Commissioners seat.
Redditt-Garcia said qualifying papers for potential candidates will be available at the circuit clerk’s office, and 50 signatures are required when returned. The 50 signatures, according to Redditt, must be from registered voters of that district.
“The final day for qualifying papers will be 5 p.m. on Sept. 7, but we’re asking that they be returned no later than four o’clock, so we can make sure everything is correct,” Redditt said.
The holder of the current District Four School Board position is Marjorie Hughes, who has held the position since 2012.
Hughes was appointed to the position to fill the seat of her late husband James Hughes unexpired term. In 2013 she was elected to a full five-year term on the board.
The current holder of the District Four Election Commissioner seat is Elizabeth Moore. Moore was appointed to the seat last month following the resignation of Rhonda Hubbard.
The the school board and election commissioners race will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.
