Primary election is Aug. 12

Candidates for federal, state, county and local offices who elect by ward filed for office earlier this summer. An Aug. 12 primary will be held for partisan races where more than one person has filed, or for non-partisan races where more than two people filed for one position. If only one name is listed, that person will run unopposed in the Nov. 4 general election.

Slated to go on the primary ballot in Carlton County will be candidates for the positions of County Commissioner District 4 (Susan Zmyslony, Terry Lund, Mark Thell, Paul Mickelson and Pat Oman), Cloquet mayor (Dave Hallback, Bruce Ahlgren and Mark Goad), and Cloquet Ward One council member (Dustin Mason, Jeff Rock and David Manderfeld).

Also on the primary ballot will be a bond issue proposal for Barnum School District.
