QUINCY — Add two more candidates to the list of people interested in seats on the Adams County Board.

David Hoskins (R-District 7) filed for re-election on Thursday. Republican Jim Fisher also filed to run in District 3.

Fisher joins Rodney Hermsmeier as challengers to three Republican incumbents — Marvin Kerkhoff, Dave Bellis and Raquel Sparrow — running in District 3. That now puts it as five Republicans running for three spots in the June 28 GOP Primary.

Democrat Sarah Lucey had also filed to run in District 3.

Hoskins joins two fellow incumbents Joe Zanger and Theresa Bockhold on the District 7 Republican slate along with first-time candidate Jeremy Allen. That makes it four people running for three Republican nomination spots in June.

Kate Daniels, chairman of the Adams County Democratic Party Central Committee, also filed to run for County Board in District 7.

Up to three members from each party can advance from the June 28 primary to the November 8 general election, where the top three vote-getters, regardless of party, will win seats in each County Board district.

That puts the number of candidates seeking 21 County Board seats at 31. Filing continues until Monday, March 14 at 5 p.m.
