County sees one file as write-in
WARREN — Only one candidate, for Warren City Council’s 5th Ward seat, filed as a write-in.
Monday was the deadline to file as a write-in.
Koree McLennan of Perkinswood Boulevard SE filed for the May Democratic primary.
Two Democrats will have their names appear on the primary ballot for the 5th Ward council seat: Ashley Miner of Burton Street SE and Pierson Butcher of Hazelwood Avenue SE.
The seat is open because incumbent Democratic Ken MacPherson of Central Parkway Avenue SE is running for a council-at Large position.
The winner will face Republican Robert A. Marchese of Country Club Drive SE, a former council president as a Democrat, in the general election.
Also, May 3, the day before the Democratic primary, is the deadline for independent candidates to file for positions in Warren, Niles, Girard, Hubbard city, Lordstown, McDonald and Newton Falls.
