Local News, Notes and Events

Open in new windowApologies for not posting this sooner. I'd really been hoping to have my database ready so I could have this presented to you in a similar way to how we show election results on election night. But I've had some technical issues there, and apparently having it perfect is the enemy of having it done.

That said, I'm just going to start posting the names of candidates here and the positions they are running for. I'll come back later and add more detail, such as campaign websites and basic information.

The second filing period for the May 29th Primary election ended Friday. These candidates are the ones listed by the Democratic and Republican parties.

Feel free to use the comment section to add your own thoughts about the candidates, if you can do it in a civil way.

Candidates within each race are listed in no particular order. Only the races that can be voted on within Denton County will be listed.
