Ballots were dropped in the mail on Monday for this month’s primary election. In Pitkin County, the local race is between three candidates for county commissioner. Carolyn Sackariason has the details.
Voters can only choose one candidate. The two with the most votes advance to the November election, according to the Home Rule Charter. Greg Poschman, Scott Writer and Hawk Greenway, all longtime valley residents, are vying for the seat. It is currently held by Michael Owsley, who has to step down because of term limits.
