Even though there are few contested races in local elections, some clarity should come soon as today the deadline passes to accept or decline party nominations and we should know if there are any objections being filed to petitions submitted last week.
One race to watch is in District 14 of the County Legislature where there were apparently two sets turned in for the GOP nomination. However the challenger to longtime lawmaker Jennie Adsit may face objections.
I haven't heard if that Democrat in District 12 submitted anything or not.
As I have said before, there is no contested race for City Council and no surprises in the mayor or judge races with the expected candidates submitting ample petitions.
