County fair board election today

The fair board election will continue as scheduled in Mayes County. District 3 has a race which will be decided Saturday. Voting is at the county barn from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Incumbent Gerald Pritchett will face Laura Pursley. Pritchett has been a board member for three years.

“He’s been a vital asset to the board,” Fair Board President Kelly Brown said. Brown said Pritchett provided heavy equipment and did the dirt work for recent construction at the fairgrounds free of charge. Brown said Pritchett has also been instrumental in securing grants to upgrade the fair facility.

“I’m sure she (Laura Pursley) is a qualified candidate,” Brown said. “I know she has been active in Locust Grove 4-H and they raise show pigs.”

Brown said since the election is already set by resolution with the county commissioners, it will proceed whatever the weather.
