Mike Kelley against Dave Taylor and Larry Fidler all Republicans for sheriff. Mike Coffman, Gini McCourt Davision, Juanita Adams,Kay Hurst, all against each other for Magistrate. You can vote for 2. Dale Bennett and Helen Phillips against each other for assessor, both Republican. County commission is Buddy Brady, Keith Nichols, Creed Pletcher against each other..all Republicans. Mayor, don't know. Since this is sthe primary you will have to vote for someone on your ticket. The only Democrat that I know for sure is running is Ables for commission but that won't happen until Nov. He will run against whoever wins in May. Please vote but think carefully and check your facts. These people are supposed to be representing us. Some do, Some do't

The Mayor race is non-partisan. However, Skeeter is a Republican.

My question is: is this Gini McCourt Davison related to Charlie McCourt?

She might be ok as long as her father doesn't want to go with her on domestic abuse cases.

Gini is very qualified for the position and in my opinion would do a very good and honest job. It's time to get someone in there that's young and physically able to do the job.

It is time to get at least one out of that office. I have nothing against McCourts daughter but I hope she doesn't think he can show her how to do her job it scares me to think that he would be allowed in the courthouse again after hours after what he did to the ladies he messed with the first time. It is very sad for his daughter because she may do a great job but I can't vote for her because I would be afraid Charlie would use her to hit on these poor women that are abused anyway.

Dale is a great person who has a lot to offer Upshur County. People need to listen and see the information and good points he has to offer. Everyone needs to see people for who they are and not who they are associate with...prime example Gini. Let us not be so shallow.

Dale is only running because his wife, Terri Jo was unsuccessful in running for assessor twice. I've heard his campaign speech. He's got nothing and really appears to know very little about being an assessor.

Is Dale going to actually be the assessor? Is he going to give up his surveyor business to be assessor. If he is elected this is a full time job can't run a business and the county office at the same time.

Dale is a great person compared to his wife!! The only reason I would want him to get it is to throw it in Terri Jo Bennett face that she tried twice and couldn't get voted in!!
I will vote for Helen though! Just because of who Dale is married to. Terri Jo would try to run the show!!

There are alot of important decisions to make in May, so I hope everyone pays attention and gets the facts on the candidates - this isn't a popularity contest- these people will be in important positions in local government that will affect all of us in some way.

I agree that we desperately some fresh faces in city hall and the courthouse. I'm still amazed that there are no term limits to some of these positions - how long have Helen Phillips and Juanita Adams had those lucrative jobs? Seems time to get some young professionals in there.

I won't advise anyone how to vote, but my vote goes to Dale Bennett for Assessor, Buddy Brady for Commission, Mike Kelly for Sheriff, Mike Coffman and Kay Hurst for Magistrate, but I'm still undecided on the council and mayor's positions - wish there were more options than those who have filed.

Is Buckhannon really that niave to believe for a second that if "chalies daughter' would be elected he wouldnt be running the show? He is a nasty man, with nasty beliefs especailly with females...(even when he was a bus driver around teenagers) Now imagine for a second..being his DAUGHTER..
Maybe she is completely different but..seems to me she seems pretty proud of her dear old daddy...she is still using his name to get...dare I say..votes...
