The Labette County Republican Party will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at the Carnegie Arts Center, 117 S. 17th, to nominate a replacement for Third District County Commissioner Doug Allen.
Allen forfeited his seat when he moved out of the district last week, but he had planned on resigning Nov. 6.
Only one candidate is expected to apply to complete Allen’s term, Cole Proehl. Proehl is the only candidate on the Nov. 3 for the Third District seat.
The GOP meeting will start with credentialing at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting will start at 7. Only presently elected precinct committee people from the Third Commission District will be allowed to vote. Proxy forms are available for committee members, but these must be notarized.
