The 2019 General Election is set for Tuesday, Nov. 5. Here’s a breakdown of the remaining races in Jackson County:


Nobody filed to run against incumbent Coalton Mayor Kim Milliken, so she will appear on the ballot unopposed.

There were two seats available for Coalton Village Council, but only one person filled: Stacy Storms, who was appointed to council recently. Looks like longtime councilwoman, Donna Brisker, didn’t file, so the mayor and council will have to appoint someone to that seat.


The Jackson City School Board of Education has four candidates running for its three available seats: incumbents Pat McDonald, Brian Moore, Brian K. Morris, and challenger Chris Bice.

Oak Hill

Oak Hill has two contested “village government” races appearing on the ballot.

First, incumbent Oak Hill Mayor Robert Leonard, who is finishing up his first-term, is being challenged by four other individuals for the position of mayor. Running against Leonard are former Oak Hill Mayor Paul A. McNeal, Bob Brown, former Oak Hill councilman John Love, and Timothy A. Simpson.

There are three candidates who filed to run for two available Oak Hill Village Council seats: incumbents Tara Cooper, David A. Ward, and challenger Greta J. Hale

Candidates appearing on the ballot that are unopposed are:

  • Board of Trustees of Public Affairs — Richard McFann, Gary J. Thomas (write-in)
