HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – It has been three weeks since filing for the 2020 Election in Montana began, and the races for county offices in Chouteau County are beginning to take shape.
One county race that looks to be heading for a competitive primary is for the seat of Chouteau County Commissioner for District 1. Three people have filed for this seat, and all are Republicans from Big Sandy. They are incumbent Daren Schuster, Rick Darlington and Beau Pegar.
The other race in Chouteau County where someone has filed is for the positions of County Clerk of Court, Superintendent of Schools and County Surveyor. Republican Rick Cook of Fort Benton, who is the incumbent, has filed for re-election for these positions.
The only other office up for election is the position of Chouteau County Public Administrator. No one has filed for this position, including incumbent Democrat Karen Brooke.
The Primary Election is scheduled for June 2, while the General Election will take place November 3.
The deadline to file for the 2020 Election is March 9.
