Fred Apt and Bruce Symes are tossing their hats in the ring to be considered by Republican precinct members as a replacement for Jim Talkington for Allen County Commission.
Talkington’s successor will be selected by precinct people in District 3, which comprises the First, Third and Fourth wards of Iola, Bassett and South Iola Township.
Precinct members will gather Thursday evening to vote on the position, which will carry through the end of the year.
