8 GOP candidates, 1 Democrat, qualify for 3 County Commission seats

Incumbent Horgan opposed by newcomer and CPA Oddo, incumbent Hearn faces businessman Ognio and homemaker Stopford, open Post 2 gets businessman Barlow, attorney Sheila Huddleston and former Commissioner Jack Smith

The qualifying period for Fayette County Commission candidates that was delayed until this week ended at noon on Friday. Qualifying for the three expiring seats on the Fayette County Commission ended with contested elections in each of the three districts up for a vote on July 31.

Republican candidates qualifying for the Post 1 seat were incumbent Robert Horgan and Charles Oddo.

Qualifying for the Post 2 seat were Republican videographer David Barlow, attorney Sheila Huddleston and former Fayette County Commissioner Jack Smith. Incumbent Herb Frady announced recently that he would not be seeking re-election.

Also qualifying for the Post 2 seat in the Democratic primary was CEO/investigator Neely Moody.

And Republicans qualifying for the Post 3 seat included incumbent Lee Hearn, small business owner Randy Ognio and homemaker Susan Stopford.

Commission candidates qualified under the new map that specifies five commission districts rather than the three districts previously in use. To date, and unless a change related to the suit by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is forthcoming, the July 31 primary election will feature at-large voting for all commission posts.
