POMEROY — Two candidates have submitted their petitions to run as independent candidates for county-wide offices in the November General Election.

Moe Hajivandi filed on Friday to run as an independent candidate for Meigs County Commissioner. If his petition is certified, Hajivandi would face the winner of the Republican Primary race between incumbent Tim Ihle and challenger Danny Davis.

Cheyenne Trussell filed on Monday to run as an independent candidate for Meigs County Auditor. If her petition is certified, Trussell would face incumbent Mary Byer-Hill in November.
