The obvious, so far, is incumbent Law Director Joe Jarret facing off against former county Commissioner Bud Armstrong (both have already returned their petitions); and incumbent Property Assessor Phil Ballard against former assessor John Whitehead. (Both have announced but neither has turned in a petition yet.)
Steven Sword is seeking re-election for criminal court judge, division I.
The other four county races are for school board seats. Only incumbent Karen Carson has returned her petition, but others have picked up one, so we could have a few contested races.
Here's the breakdown so far:
- 2nd District: incumbent Indya Kincannon
- 3rd District: Elaine Davis and Bobby Edington
- 5th District: Karen Carson, Brian Bruce
- 8th District: Mike McMillian and Conley Underwood.
