A three-term former Clark County School Board member, Republican Ruth L. Johnson, will challenge Commissioner Tom Collins for the District B seat, which represents much of the northeastern county.
Were she to win, Johnson would join Susan Bager and Mary Beth Scow as former school board members on the County Commission.
Others who have filed to run for Collins’ seat are Warren Markowitz of the Independent American Party and Republican Jon Blackwell.
Friday is the last day for candidates to file for commission and statewide contests.
Other commissioners up for re-election are Steve Sisolak, Larry Brown and Lawrence Weekly.
Brian Brassfield, Independent American Party, has filed to run against Sisolak; Brown faces two Republican candidates, Gary Hosea and Craig O. Lake; and Weekly is up against Republican Wesley Cornwell.
