Joe Horn will run again against Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier in the upcoming election. Horn lost to Meier in 2010 with only 35 percent of the votes.
This is Meier’s third term as the incumbent in his seat. He lost only in the Frazer district in the previous elections.
Another race for Valley County justice of the peace will include David L. McLean and Christine Gamas. This position was also contested in the 2010 election with Linda Hartsock winning the race with 44 percent of the votes against two challengers.
Hartsock was halfway through her fourth four-year term when she was arrested July 2013 and later resigned from her position. James Wixson was appointed by the county commissioners in September to finish out the term.
There is still no candidate filing for the Valley County commissioner position for District 1 now held by Dave Pippin.
