Heidi Shafer will not be able to run again for County Commission District 5 because of term limits. Two candidates so far have announced they’re running for her seat.
Richard Morton is in the race. He’s a long time GOP activist.
Geoff Diaz also has announced for that spot. He has been active in the East Shelby Club, serving as president. He also participated in the Republican Hispanic Club. Lately Diaz has supported DACA and attended rallies in support of keeping Dreamers here.
