  • A hearing will be held today at the Pottawatomie County Election Board concerning a Contest of Candidacy in the Ward 5 Shawnee city commission race.
    During the filing period earlier this month, Lesa Shaw, 53, filed for that seat, along with Incumbent John Winterringer, 48.
    Shaw, on the last day of the filing period, filed paperwork with the Election Board to contest Winterringer’s candidacy for that post because of his place of residence.
    That filing notes that while he owns the home on Mesa Verde Street in Ward 5, Winterringer hasn’t resided there in the past year. The filed document shows a hearing on that matter will be held 10 a.m. today, with a three-member Election Board panel hearing all evidence before deciding that issue.
    Watch for updates in Thursday’s edition.
