The deadline for candidates to file as independents to run for city council and school board is approaching and more races have shaped up.
Filing for the Ward 12 Hopkinsville City Council seat held by Philip Brooks is Derek Patterson, who owns D.T.’s Last Call in the downtown area. Patterson’s filing means there will be at least four city council races contested in the November general election. No one has filed to run in Ward 1, where Cornelia Belle was recently appointed to fill the remainder of the late Fred Atkins’ term.
Three Christian County School Board seats are on the ballot this year and two candidates have filed papers. Filing for the District 1 seat currently held by Sheila Cottrell is Clayton Boyd, while Teresa Moss will run in District 2 which is the seat currently held by Betsy Glover.
The District 4 seat currently held by Linda Keller is also on the ballot this year, but no one has filed papers to run. The deadline to file is August 14th.
