The seven candidates were Democrat David Siniard; Republicans Larry Chapman, Jason Chappell and Teresa McCall; and Unaffiliated candidates Carl Conley Jr., Mike Hawkins and Page Lemel. Each candidate answered questions about how they would approach key county issues, such as zoning, economic development, the proposed Ecusta Trail, high-speed internet access and building a new courthouse.
