It’s always fairly easy to find 12 candidates to fill Hopkinsville City Council, but the smaller incorporated towns are once again having a harder time getting people to file.
Christian County Clerk’s Office Elections Coordinator Melinda Humphries says candidates are needed in Oak Grove, Crofton, Pembroke and Lafayette.
No one has filed to run for city council in Oak Grove, where the top six vote getters are elected. Norma Banks has filed her paperwork for Lafayette, Anthony Durham has in Crofton and Sherry Byerline and Jeanette Aldridge have in Pembroke.
There are six council-members in Crofton and four in Pembroke and four commissioners in Lafayette. All of those elections are non-partisan and the deadline to file is August 14th.
