Jefferson County Collector candidate withdraws

The lone Republican candidate for Jefferson County Collector has pulled out of the race. Julie Ann Zelenda of Cedar Hill was the only remaining Republican candidate after Lisa Brewer withdrew in late March. Jefferson County Elections Clerk Randy Holman says this opens up filing for a short time.

Holman says having someone withdraw from a race as they only candidate from one party… unusual.

Jeannie Goff with the clerk’s office spoke about what one might need to file.

Again, candidate filing for the Jefferson County Republican Collector will end on Wednesday afternoon at 5.

The only Democrat filing for collector is incumbent Beth Mahn.
