A successor will be appointed next month to fill the vacant seat of Hardin County Commissioner following the death of Ed Elliott. WKTN Radio reports that the Hardin County Republican Party will meet March 7th to name a successor. This person will serve until the term is completed in early 2017.
Currently one Republican, Robert Carder, is running in the March 15th Primary. He will face independent Roger Crowe in November. As Elliott was to run in the primary his name will still appear on the ballot this March but a notice will be given to voters advising them that a vote for Elliott will not count.
