Candidate’s signs tout primary election that isn’t happening

MAY 8, 10:50 A.M – Signs have popped up throughout the Fairfield District recently encouraging voters to cast their ballots in an election that isn't actually happening.

John Dantzler has announced his intention to seek the Fairfield District seat on the county's Board of Supervisors, which is currently held by Democrat Frank Thornton. In his initial filing with the county's registrar, Dantzler indicated that he would be seeking the Democratic nomination. And signs that he has erected in the district encourage voters to cast their ballots for him in a June 9 party primary, though they do not mention any party affiliation.

There's just one problem: that election will not take place.

Young II and Stephen Adkins.
