SHEPHERDSVILLE - A few more names have been added to the list of candidates looking to seek elective office during the 2010 campaigns in Bullitt County.

But none of the names are a surprise to those involved with the political system.

The filing deadline in the Bullitt County Clerk’s office is on Tuesday, Jan. 26, at 4 p.m.

In the race for county judge, Republican Depp Rasner has filed, as have Democratic challengers Kenneth Hardin and David Strange. Expected to join the field prior to the deadline is incumbent Republican Melanie Roberts and Democrat Joe Sohm.

Jailer Danny Fackler has filed for re-election, as have fellow Democrat Donnie Tinnell for sheriff.

The lone magisterial signup is Randy Nalley, a Democrat running for the Third District seat. Nalley won the Democratic primary in 2006 but lost the general election to Joe Laswell.

Sherman Tinnell has filed for a third term as mayor of Shepherdsville on the Democratic ticket. Republican Scott Ellis is expected to file prior to the deadline, which could make for a rematch of the 2006 general election.

The most coveted race so far is constable in the Fourth District. Incumbent Charlie Wright already has opposition from Buddy Greenwell and Judd Vandiver.

Clifton Hudson has filed as a Republican seeking the constable’s position in the Second District.
