Few candidates have stepped forward to run in city and school races, even though the deadline to file is just days away.


Up for grabs this fall are city council and commission races in Allen, Prestonsburg, Martin, Wayland and Wheelwright, as well as mayor’s races in each of those cities except Martin. Also on the ballot will be school board races in districts 1 and 2, currently held by Linda Gearheart and Dr. Chandra Varia, respectively, as well as Soil & Water Conservation District supervisors.


As of noon, Thursday, no one had filed for the school board seats and no one had stepped forward to run for mayor in Allen, and only Prestonsburg and Wheelwright had fielded enough candidates to fill their councils, though just barely.


The deadline to file is at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 12.
