Thursday, January 20, 2022
ANGOLA — The Republican nomination for the District 4 seat on the Steuben County Council is officially a race.
Former county department head Frank Charlton filed his candidacy on Wednesday for the District 4 seat that is currently held by Tony Isa. Isa is in the start of his second year in office after he was caucused in to his seat in December 2020 after the previous office holder, Wil Howard, was elected to the Steuben County Board of Commissioners.
Charlton was a former county department head for the building and planning department, and then parks department.
So far the District 4 seat is the only contested race for the Steuben County Council.
One open seat remains for District 1 as the incumbent, Jim Getz, is running for the North District seat on the Steuben County Board of Commissioners. He’s running against Andy Laughlin. Christina Cress is running for the District 1 nomination.
District 2 incumbent Rick Shipe and District 3 incumbent Ruth Beer are so far unopposed for nomination.
