April election
Filings begin next Tuesday, Dec. 7, for several offices.

One candidate for Texas County Memorial Hospital board of trustees will not be listed on the ballot when voters go to the polls April 7, according to a ruling from County Clerk Laura Crowley.

Gina Umfleet of Licking was disqualified under a state statute that requires no delinquency on taxes.

Barring a write-in candidacy, that now leaves George A. Scholtz Jr. of Plato as the sole candidate for the five-year term being vacated by Janet Wiseman. The board of trustees, comprised of five members, oversees the county-owned hospital.
