 Candidates File for County, School Board Offices

February 27, 2008 - As of last Friday's noon deadline, 49 people had declared themselves candidates for public office in Henry County's May 6 primary and school board elections.

In the race for three at-large seats on the Henry County Council, the Republican incumbents - Harold Griffin, Mike Thalls and Bob Veach - are facing challenges from fellow Republicans Mike McKown and Don Shaw. The three with the most votes May 6 will face Democrat challenger Jeff Hancock in the November 4 general election.

Republican County Commissioners Phil Estridge (Southern) and Larry Hale (Middle) are both facing primary challenges. Glenn Anthony and Sam Beckenbaugh are taking on Estridge, while Hale squares off against current county councilman and former Sheriff Kim Cronk. The winner of the Hale-Cronk race will face Democrat Brian Ingermann in the fall.

The only other county office that will be the subject of contested races on May 6 and November 4 is that of county coroner. Two Republicans, Dudley Guffey and Mike Drake, will face each other in the primary, with the victor going up against the current coroner, Democrat Stacey Guffey, in the general election.

Henry County's three Republican incumbent judges face no challengers May 6. If no independent or third-party candidates file to run by a June 30 deadline, Circuit Court Judge Mary Willis, Superior Court 1 Judge Micheal Peyton and Superior Court 2 Judge Bob Witham will also be unopposed on the November 4 ballot.

In the May 6 school board elections, all five of Henry County's school corporations will feature contested races. The Charles A. Beard Memorial School Corp. race features the highest number of candidates, eight, followed by New Castle Community School Corp., which had seven. Blue River Valley, Shenandoah and South Henry each have five candidates.
