Commissioners to seek re-election

DAVENPORT - The two incumbent Lincoln County Commissioners with expiring terms are both seeking re-election. District No. 1 Commissioner Jo Gilchrist and District No. 2 Commissioner Scott Hutsell both filed for the August primary election during filing week this week.

Gilchrist, of Bluestem, has long planned to file for a 4-year term after being appointed to the seat vacated by Mark Stedman in early 2023.

But Hutsell, of Davenport, had intended as early as last year to retire after his current term expires. Two weeks ago, he officially decided to flip that stance and try for a fifth term.
