In a closely watched Republican primary for Wood County commissioner, Doris Herringshaw was the top vote-getter among the five candidates.
Ms. Herringshaw, Wood County’s former extension agent, will face Democrat Joel Kuhlman in November. Mr. Kuhlman, a Bowling Green attorney, was appointed in January to fill longtime Commissioner Alvie Perkins’ seat on the board. Mr. Perkins retired Jan. 11 on his 79th birthday after more than two decades as a county commissioner.
Ms. Herringshaw, 62, of Liberty Township, received the most votes followed by Terry Krukemyer of Pemberville, David Beaverson of Middleton Township, Richard Ruffner of Webster Township, and Adam Seibert of Jerry City.
