Democrat will face Sherry in May primary

TELL CITY - Perry County has its first contested race in the May 6 primary election. William E. "Bill" Amos of 912 30th St., Tell City, filed Thursday for the District 1 seat on the county's board of commissioners. The Democrat will face incumbent Don Sherry in the primary.

"I want to get involved and I feel I have a good deal to offer to the community," Amos said. Retired from Domtar, formerly Weyerhaeuser and Willamette, Amos is a member of the Perry County Recycling District Advisory Board and St. Paul Catholic Church. He has also been active in Scouting.

Amos said he plans to attend future meetings of the board of commissioners to learn more about the issues facing the community.

The deadline for declaring candidacy for the May 6 primary is noon Feb. 22. Voters will decide races this year for three at-large seats on the county council, the District 1 and District 3 seats on the board of commissioners, county recorder and surveyor.

Two seats on the Perry Central School Board will be decided in the May primary.
