Colbert County District Six Heats Up

There may be four weeks before actual qualifying begins, but District Six in Colbert County is already awash with candidates. So far, three have indicated they will run as Democrats for the county commission

Charles (Charlie) Hovater is a graduate of Cherokee High School and currently works for the Sheffield Utility Department. Hovater's signs can be seen along Hwy 43 and other well traveled areas of the district.

David C. Isom ran an unsuccessful campaign four years ago, but the owner of C& I Crane in Tuscumbia is already handing out bumper stickers and magnetic car signs to his supporters.

Dale Presley is a Silver Grove, Kentucky, native who currently resides in Tuscumbia. Sources indicate Presley, a store manager in Cherokee, may make her official announcement as early as next week.

We'll bring you more on each of these candidates as the March primary draws closer. We do have to ask where are the Republicans? Surely in 2012, the staunchly Democratic county could muster just one to run for each seat?
