Larry Torres filed for Precinct 1 seat

Local resident Larry Torres has filed to run for the Precinct 1 seat on the Howard County commissioners on the Democratic ticket, with Monday the most recent deadline for political hopefuls to file to run in the upcoming March primaries.
Seats up for election in the 2012 election include 118th Judicial District Attorney, currently held by Hardy Wilkerson; Howard County sheriff, currently held by Stan Parker; county attorney, held by Joshua Hamby; tax assessor collector, held by Kathy Sayles; Precinct 3 county commissioner, held by Jimmie Long; and Precinct 1 county commissioner, held by Emma Brown.
Parker has filed to run for re-election, as have Long, Green and Wilkerson.
Local resident M.O. Horton has announced he will run against Parker for the office of sheriff. However, the Herald has been unable to verify if Horton has filed to run on the Republican ticket because calls to Republican Chairman Craig Bailey were not immediately returned.
To file candidacy with the Republican party, contact Chairman Bailey at 267-2464. To file with the Democratic party, contact Shipman at 264-6660.
