  • Magistrate rematch features court battle

    One of the closest races for magistrate in 2010 will see a repeat race on May 20.

    Current 5th District Magistrate JD Sparks is running for re-election against the person he beat for the job four years ago, former magistrate Iva Davis. The first race between the two was decided by a mere 13 votes.

    And both candidates are feeling good about the second round.

    “I’ve had a wonderful response from the 5th District,” Davis said. “I’ve put out 350 signs, had people walking with me. I’m overwhelmed with the support.”

  • PVA race focusing on experience, assessments

    The race to fill the only open countywide seat has turned into a discussion of trust, assessments and experience.

    Barbara Winters and Albert Harrison are running to replace the outgoing Ron Winters as property valuation administrator (PVA) on May 20. Ron Winters is retiring from the office.

    In a primary where many voters aren’t sure what the PVA does, Harrison and Winters have gone back and forth over the assessment on Winters’ residence and Harrison’s experience.
