Filing period coming up for Cass candidates

2014 ballot will include several offices.

Filing to run for several public offices in Cass County will begin this week.

Candidates will be able to file Wednesday through Feb. 7 at noon. Application packets will be available at the Cass County Voter Registration Office on the first floor of the Cass County Government Building, 200 Court Park.

"We have a very, very large election coming up," said Cass County Clerk Beth Liming.

This year will bring elections in the county for recorder, sheriff, assessor, commissioner for the 3rd District, council members for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th districts, trustees and board members for all 14 townships, Democratic precinct committee members and Democrat and Republican state convention delegates.

The ballots in May and November will also include candidates for U.S. Representative in Congress District 4, Indiana House of Representatives districts 23, 25 and 38 and Cass County Prosecuting Attorney. Those seeking these positions must file with the Indiana Election Division in Indianapolis.

Several Cass County Council members whose terms end this year plan to run again, including Grover Bishop, Phil Rains and Brian Reed.

Reed stated in a press release he has enjoyed the last three years of his second term on the council. He goes on to praise fiscal prioritization throughout county departments and said he is encouraged by current and future economic development projects in the area.

"I look forward to the next four years and will continue to work to appropriate tax payer dollars responsibly," Reed said in the release.

Dave Arnold, a commissioner representing the county's 3rd District, recently announced he will not run for a third term this year.

Arnold said he takes pride in the amount of time he has devoted to the position, adding that it's important to have someone in the commissioners' office as much as possible for county employees and taxpayers to relay their concerns.
