Charles Jones remains unopposed in his bid for a second term as a Douglas County commissioner.
Jones, an incumbent whose district includes much of Lawrence, will not face a challenge from within his Democratic Party for another four-year term. No Republicans filed to challenge him, either.
Noon Monday was the filing deadline for candidates seeking area offices leading up to the Aug. 6 primary. The general election is Nov. 5.
Only one township clerk faces a primary challenge: Dennis Baranski of Lecompton. Ken Norwood, also a Republican, filed just before Monday's deadline.
Four incumbent township clerks Â Jeanne Waisner of Kanwaka, Frank Rhodes of Marion, Jan Ballinger of Palmyra and Jerry Smith of Willow Springs Â all filed to seek re-election. All are Republicans.
In Clinton Township, Republican Jim Baldwin is the lone candidate to file for the clerk job.
In Wakarusa Township, Trish Eckart filed as a Republican, and C.V. Williams filed as a Democrat.
Nobody filed for clerk jobs in Grant and Eudora townships. Whoever wins the most write-in votes Â as long as it's at least three votes Â will be placed on the November ballot.
