Two more candidates have filed for the Marion County Board of Education, and they will be squaring off against one another Nov. 2.

Sr. Kay Carlew, the chairwoman of the board of education, has filed for re-election in the District Five seat on the board. Ed Hacker has filed to run against her.

In all, three school board seats will be on the ballot.

Mike Cecil has filed to run in District Four, and former school board member Michael Mullins has filed to run again in District Three.

The deadline for candidates to file in non-partisan elections is Aug. 10 at 4 p.m., but a handful of candidates have gotten a head start.

Mayoral incumbents Gary Crenshaw of Lebanon, Robert Miles of Loretto and Marilyn Mullins of Raywick have filed to run again Nov. 2. All of the mayoral, city council and city commission seats are up for election this year.

In the partisan races, the only contested contest to date is the race for Marion County Coroner. Republican Chuck Helm has filed to run against Democratic incumbent Dick Moraja.

In the 11th District Court, Second Division, Jeff Eastham of Greensburg has filed to run against incumbent Connie Sullivan Phillips.

The last day for write-in candidates to file for any office is Oct. 22 at 4 p.m.
