County Supervisor Richard Crouch Tops Challenger John Stacey In Republican Party Primary

-A A +A

Incumbent Mills County Supervisor Richard Crouch advanced to the November general election by defeating challenger John Stacey, 600-268, in the June 5 Republican primary election.

The supervisor seat was the only contested race for a county courthouse position. Crouch will be opposed in the November general election by Libertarian Jay Andersen, who received 10 of 13 votes in his party’s primary.
Incumbent Republican county treasurer Jill Ford, county recorder Lisa Tallman and county attorney Naeda Elliott were all unopposed. Ford, Tallman and Elliott are likely to be unopposed in the general election because no Democrats were on primary ballot for courthouse offices.

There were no Democratic Party candidates seeking Crouch’s seat on the board of supervisors.

State Rep. David Sieck of Glenwood, representing District 23, easily defeated challenger Tony Wernicke in Mills County, 726-130. Democrat Chuck Larson, running unopposed, received 332 votes in Mills County and will face Sieck in the general election. Sieck won the district, which also includes all of Fremont County and a portion of Montgomery County, 1,847 - 403.

Republican congressman David Young advanced in the primary and will be opposed for his District 3 seat by Democrat Cindy Axne. Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds will be opposed by Democrat Fred Hubbell.
