SIDNEY — Voters in Sidney will see two incumbents and one new person running as Democrats on their ballots in November.
Incumbents Brandon Allen and Gavin Parrett and newcomer Rebecca Adams are running along with GOP incumbent Sharon Rancourt for three spots on the Sidney Town Council.
The former three were selected to run by voters in a Democratic town convention held on Saturday, Aug. 19, at the Sidney-Jackson Township Fire Station.
The convention needed to occur as four Democrats were running for the three council seats. Along with Allen, Parrett and Adams, Jack Wolfe filed for a seat.
However, Wolfe announced he dropped out of the race, leaving the other three Democrats to actually run. As Wolfe didn’t formally withdraw from the race in time, his name was still on Saturday’s list of candidates.
Adams, Allen and Parrett each briefly spoke Saturday before voting took place. Ten people voted, which is around 9% of the 106 registered voters in town.
Candidates shared additional comments with media after voting was done.
“I hope to continue … trying to get things improved … around town, just … road projects and that sort of thing over the next four years. Regardless of who’s on the board, whether that includes me or not, I just hope to see things continuing moving in the right direction,” said Parrett.
“I feel about the same way as Gavin does. I hope to see everything move forward, whether I’m on the board or not,” said Adams.
