Only one additional candidate qualified locally Tuesday. Glennera Martin, Bulloch County Board of Education member in District 5, qualified to seek re-election, as she said she would.
So now there is at least one candidate for every office. Other candidates had qualified Monday.
With two and a half days remaining to qualify, the one school board race is between Adrianne McCollar and April Newkirk in District 4, where incumbent member Steve Hein is not seeking re-election.
Martin, BOE District 2 member Mike Sparks and District 6 member Jimmy "Jay" Cook Jr. are so far unopposed. The school board seats are nonpartisan.
For Board of Commissioners, incumbent Walter Gibson in Seat 2-B still had one official challenger Tuesday, Sid Jones, but now-former Statesboro City Councilman Travis Chance announced he will also run for this seat. If Chance qualifies as a Republican as expected, this will be a three-candidate GOP race in the May 22 primary.
For commissioners Seat 2-D, Carlos Brown, a Democrat, and Timmy Rushing, a Republican, remain the candidates for a potential race to the Nov. 6 general election. Commissioner Anthony Simmons, a Democrat, remains unopposed for seat 1-B.
Qualifying in the Board of Elections area of the County Annex, 113 N. Main St., continues daily during office hours this week, but closes at noon Friday.
