Five of six incumbents file for county election

Express Staff Writer

Five of the six officials in county government who are up for re-election this November have confirmed they intend to seek another term of office.

As of Tuesday, there were no challengers.

Dennis Wright

Blaine County Commission Chairwoman Mary Ann Mix and Commissioner Dennis Wright said they plan to run again. They are both seeking third terms.

Mix, who as commissioner represents the central Wood River Valley and most of Hailey, previously served on the Hailey City Council from 1984 to 1987. As commissioner, she has been heavily involved in land-use planning and issues surrounding the Hailey airport.

Before becoming commissioner, Wright was mayor of Bellevue from 1991 to 1996. He serves southern Blaine County, and one of his primary focuses has been roads and bridges.

Mary Ann Mix

Clerk Marsha Reimann, Treasurer Vicki Dick and Assessor Valdi Pace also said they will run again.

Coroner Russ Mikel, who first entered office in 1983, could not be reached for comment about his plans.

Mikel, Mix, Dick and Wright all would have been barred from running again if the Idaho Legislature had not overturned the state’s term limits law earlier this year.

The period for candidates to officially file with the county began Monday and ends April 5.

May 25 is the scheduled date for the primary election. The general election is scheduled for Nov. 5.
