Lo­cal of­fices up on 2016 bal­lots in Polk County

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Can­di­dates in lo­cal elec­tions are start­ing to cam­paign as signs go up around the lo­cal area and peo­ple ad­ver­tise for their top picks.

A slew of lo­cal po­si­tions are up for grabs - from the county com­mis­sion to the lo­cal courts - are get­ting ready to vie in pri­maries this spring in hope of get­ting res­i­dents to choose them for of­fice.

Those pri­maries - set for May - will give vot­ers a chance to de­cide who they be­lieve have the right ideas for Polk County in the com­ing years.

Those in­clude po­si­tions on the County Com­mis­sion, the sher­iff’s race, Pro­bate Court, Tax As­ses­sor and more.

Don’t for­get, lo­cal res­i­dents still have time to be­come can­di­dates, and can find out more by call­ing the Board of Elec­tions.

For now, turn to Page 5A to find out more about who is run­ning for of­fice.
