Election 2000

Registered voters will go to the polls Tuesday to select their party candidates for the Nov. 7 general election.

Republicans in Marion County will find three or four contested races on their ballot, depending upon their residence. Every Republican will face choices for county attorney, county sheriff and state senator. Voters in District 2 and District 3 can also choose a candidate for county commission.

The only contested race on the Democratic ballot is for the county commission seat in District 2.

Following is a capsule on each candidate running in a contested race. We asked each candidate to respond concisely to four points of inquiry:

1. Personal information.

2. Their three most important experience-related qualifications for office.

3. Their top three goals, issues or accomplishments they would pursue if elected.

4. Their top three responses to the question: “Why should I vote for you”?

Candidates for county commission also were asked an additional question which seems to be on the mind of a lot of voters: Do you support the development of a new landfill at the quarry site near Marion that would accept trash from Wichita and other locations?

Don’t forget to vote Aug. 1
