Two county political races head for Nov. showdowns
On July 27, Cimarron County voters will get an opportunity to make their choices at two of three offices up for election in 2004.
The primary finds only democratic candidates running for local county offices; County Commissioner, Dist. 2 and County Court Clerk.
The commissioners race will be decided by the primary; however, the winner of the court clerk's primary will meet a Republican candidate in November.
Also, Republican incumbent Sheriff David Dunn will find himself challenged by two opponents come November; Independent candidate Keith Borth; and Democratic candidate Fred Risley.
Borth, is currently a police officer for the City of Boise City, and is a former police officer and fireman in Stratford, Texas.
Risley, is an equipment operator for Cimarron County, Dist. 2.
In the July 27 race for Dist. 2, County Commissioner, Democratic incumbent Joe Bocock, is opposed by Democratic candidate John Howard Freeman.
Freeman currently works for Bocock as an equipment operator for Dist. 2.
Since there are no Independent or Republican opponents for November, the winner of the commissioner's primary will take the position.
With the recent decision by incumbent Charlotte McReynolds to not seek the office of County Court Clerk, both Democratic candidates are new to the political scene. One candidate however, Sherridan Perdue, works in the court Clerk's office as a deputy.
In the Democratic Primary Perdue, is challenged by Sandra Miller, a paralegal for a local law firm.
The winner of the Perdue-Miller primary, will meet Republican Pricilla Johnson in the November General Election.
Johnson is a legal secretary at a local attorney's office.
