Local election roster established in Westmoreland

After months of conjecture, the list of candidates standing for election in Westmoreland County’s November election is complete and the race has officially begun.
Incumbent Westmoreland County Sheriff C. O. Balderson, a Democrat, faces a challenge from Clyde N. Fisher, an Independent candidate and another Westmoreland county native.

Incumbent Commonwealth’s Attorney Dean J. Atkins has been challenged by Julia Hutt Sichol. Both Atkins and Sichol filed as

Independent candidates.

In what promises to be a lively contest, Commissioner of Revenue Carol B. Gawen, incumbent Republican Party, faces challenges from Independent candidates Judy M. Bowman and R. R. “Butch” Foutz III. This is Bowman’s second bid for that position.

In a departure from other constitutional officer contests, incumbent Westmoreland County Treasurer Elizabeth M. “Liz” Nash, a Republican, has not been challenged.

The Board of Supervisors contest in the lower end of Westmoreland County has the potential of taking a lively turn as the November 2011 local election draws closer.

In District 1 Republican Paul R. Mountjoy has challenged five-term incumbent Darryl E. Fisher, a Democrat.

The three-way contest in a newly configured District 2 may be the race that draws the most attention. Incumbent District 2 Supervisor Russ Culver, a Republican, has been challenged by Democrat Rosemary Mahan and Independent candidate Steve Bryant. Mahan was elected to the county’s at-large School Board position in 2007. She will complete her School Board service on December 31.

The county’s other three incumbent members of the Board of Supervisors are unchallenged. District 3’s appointed Supervisor Dorothy Dickerson Tate will appear on the ballot as a Democrat.

District 4’s five-term incumbent, Republican W. W. “Woody” Hynson and incumbent District 5 Supervisor Larry Roberson, and Independent candidate, complete the roster.

The Westmoreland County School Board contest may be a real ground breaker in as much as the 1990’s move from appointed School Boards to popularly elected School Boards previously resulted in the election of unchallenged candidates. The November 2011 election ballot’s busy School Board roster reflects a new level of interest.

In District 1, Sharon Newton Bedford and Andrea M. Roane compete for the position incumbent Genard Reed will vacate.
Longtime District 2 School Board representative Edith Hutt began service when members of that Board were still appointed. Hutt will retire when her term ends on December 31. Westmoreland County native Iris A. Lane will appear on the ballot as District 2’s single School Board candidate.

District 3 School Board representative Bryan Oliff will retire from the position on December 31. Coralynn G. “Polly” Wise is that District’s only School Board candidate. Daniel F. Wallace, an incumbent and the School Board’s current Chair, seeks re-election without contest in the county’s District 4.

The race many residents are already watching is the three-way contest for the School Board’s at-large seat. District 1 incumbent Gernard Reed opted to vacate the District 1 School Board position he currently holds in order to seek election as the county’s at-large School Board member.

Reed is challenged by retired Westmoreland County educator Scott F. Duprey and Kevin S. Garner.

Charles “Chip” Jones, a first-time candidate, seeks election as the county’s Soil and Water Conservation representative.
