Candidates for Allamakee County offices file required paperwork to be on June 4 Primary Election ballot

Three Allamakee County leadership positions up for election this year each have a differing degree of candidate options following the March 22 deadline to file candidacy paperwork to be on this year’s June 4 Primary Election ballot. One Allamakee County Board of Supervisors seat, along with the offices of Auditor and Sheriff, are all up for election this year, with the General Election scheduled for November 5. No candidacy paperwork has been filed by anyone from the Democrat party for any of the three positions.

Incumbent Republican Denise Beyer of Waukon is the lone candidate to file paperwork for the office of Allamakee County Auditor. She will be seeking her fourth four-year term in that office, after first being elected in 2012.

The single seat up for election on the Allamakee County Board of Supervisors also has just one candidate who filed paperwork, but not an incumbent. Republican Tom Clark of Harpers Ferry will be the lone name on that June 4 Primary ballot for the Supervisors race, as he is seeking the seat being vacated by Republican incumbent Mark Reiser, whose term ends at the end of this calendar year and who is not seeking re-election.

The office of Allamakee County Sheriff is the lone County level race featuring a contested Primary ballot, as two Republican candidates have filed paperwork. Incumbent Clark Mellick is being challenged in seeking his fourth four-year term as Sheriff by Paul Wagner of Waukon, who is currently serving as the Waukon Police Chief.

Absentee voting for this year’s June 4 Primary Election begins May 15. Additional election and candidate information will be printed in The Standard as it becomes available.
