Day Two of filing for the Luther Town Trustee Election brought some political newcomers and just one incumbent to the Oklahoma County Election Board. There are six candidates for four available seats, with one more day to file.
Jason Roach, owner of Triangle Silt Dike on Hwy 66, west of Luther Road, filed to fill the unexpired term (two-years) Tuesday afternoon. Later in the day, Herbert Keith also filed for that seat.
Incumbent Andy McDaniels filed for the four-year term. He joins three other candidates who will compete for three seats on the board. They are Paxton Cavin, Jenni White and Ronald Johnson.
There are no candidates for the position of Clerk/Treasurer. Filing closes Wednesday at 5pm at the election office at 4201 N Lincoln Blvd. (Note to candidates, your paperwork must be NOTARIZED before filing!)
The campaign will last until the election on April 4, 2017.
As part of The Luther Register’s election coverage, we will craft a Voter’s Guide asking each candidate to voluntarily complete a questionnaire that will seek information about experience, biographical information, and most importantly, his/her vision for Luther.
