PAULDING – Monday, May 5 was the deadline for individuals to file petitions as independent candidates in the General Election on Nov. 4.
Georgia Dyson, of Payne, has filed to run for county commissioner for the full term commencing Jan. 1, 2015. She will be a nonpartisan candidate vying against Republican primary winner Mark Holtsberry and Democrat Bob Burkley for the seat currently held by Commissioner Fred Pieper.
Last July, Dyson, a U.S. Army veteran and sheriff’s reserve deputy, was fired from her position as county dog warden by the county commissioners.
