HUERFANO-  Gardnerian Ken McArthur, chief of the Upper Huerfano Fire Protection District, has announced he is seeking the County Commissioner seat for District 1.  McArthur will be running as an independent against Roger Cain, a Republican, and Charlie Montoya, a Democrat.

    Maurice Heikes of La Veta, challenging Scott King for the Democratic ticket for District 2, is withdrawing, after not all of the signatures were approved on his petition to get on the ballot.
