Final Candidate List Released for 2023 Primary Election
Today, the LCO Election Committee published the official ballot order for the 2023 Primary Election to be held on May 13th. The Caucus was held on April 1st whereby 24 candidates were nominated, and after background checks and a 3-day acceptance period, the total number of candidates running this year to fill 4 open seats, is now set at 18.
All candidates in the Primary Election will be narrowed down to the top eight vote getters, who will then advance to the General Election, Saturday, June 17. The top eight will first have to pass a drug test and any who doesn’t pass the drug test will be removed from the ballot and the candidate from the Primary receiving the next highest votes will then be placed on the General Election ballot.
The candidates currently serving on the LCO TGB whose terms expire in 2023 are LCO Vice Chairwoman Lorraine Gouge and members Michelle Beaudin, Glenda Barber and Gary “Little Guy” Clause.
