Can­di­date for judge won’t make May bal­lot

Dayton Daily News - - LOCALFOCUS -

One can­di­date for judge won’t make the May 8 pri­mary bal­lot in Mont­gomery County af­ter the board of elec­tions Tues­day cer­ti­fied nom­i­nat­ing pe­ti­tions sub­mit­ted by can­di­dates.

Demo­crat Alan D. Ga­bel of Day­ton sub­mit­ted nom­i­nat­ing pe­ti­tions with the wrong date for the Mont­gomery County Com­mon Pleas Judge-Gen­eral Di­vi­sion po­si­tion he sought, said Steve Hars­man, deputy di­rec­tor of the board.

That is con­sid­ered a “fa­tal er­ror” be­cause each com­mon pleas judge po­si­tion has a spe­cific start date and the cor­rect one must be listed on nom­i­nat­ing pe­ti­tions signed by reg­is­tered vot­ers.

That means there will be no pri­mary race for the re­main­ing Demo­crat, Mont­gomery County Ju­ve­nile Court Mag­is­trate Ger­ald Parker of Cen­ter­ville, who will face Judge Erik R. Blaine, a Repub­li­can, in the Nov. 6 Gen­eral Election.

All other can­di­dates were cer­ti­fied ex­cept some seek­ing po­lit­i­cal party state cen­tral com­mit­tee spots.
