Incumbents for Marion County offices file paperwork

Knoxville — By the end of the day Friday, the incumbents for the four Marion County elected offices up in November will have filed their paperwork to seek reelection. 

Supervisor Craig Agan, Treasurer Denise Emal and Attorney Ed Bull have already submitted their paperwork, according to Auditor Jake Grandia. Recorder Karen Schwanebeck had not filed her paperwork yet, but intended to by the end of the day. 

Grandia said he has not received paperwork from any other candidates for County offices for the June primary. The deadline to file and get on the ballot is Wednesday, March 26, at the close of business. 

If there are no canddiates for any county office for either party following the primary, a special party convention can be held to nominate someone to be on the general election ballot. Currently, Emal is the only Democrat candidate involved in the primary. The other three are Republicans, and no candidates have challengers. 

As we've reported, there will not be a primary race on the Republican side for Iowa House District 28, as first suspected. Jon Van Wyk dropped out of the race, leaving Greg Heartsill as the sole candidate on the ballot for the Republican nomination. Megan Suhr is seeking the Democratic nomination. (See related article.)

Republican Guy Vander Linden is the sole candidate to have filed for House District 79. He has no Republican challenger and there is no Democrat seeking the office. 

Marion County's State Senate Districts, 14 and 40, are not up for election this year. Amy Sinclair and Ken Rozenboom currently hold these offices. 

A complete listing of candidates for statewide offices can be found accompanying this article.
