Filing for 2010 elections began last Wednesday, and some local incumbents have already tossed their hats into the ring.
Among those to file are seven incumbents, and no challengers have filed for office at this time, although the deadline is not until Jan. 26, 2010, according to the Washington County Clerk’s office.
All county offices will be up for election in 2010, and those seeking re-election include:
Ben Settles, Morris Sweazy and Terry Tingle - magistrates
John Settles - Washington County Judge-Executive
