ASPEN – No new candidates for any of the three Pitkin County commissioner seats up for election in November stepped forward by Friday’s deadline to file nomination petitions.That means incumbents George Newman and Michael Owsley will run unopposed on the general-election ballot. In District 4, where Commissioner Jack Hatfield cannot seek re-election because of term limits, four candidates who had previously announced their plans to seek the seat will face off in a June 26 primary. The two top vote-getters will advance to the November ballot.The contenders in District 4 are: former Aspen Fire Chief Darryl Grob, Snowmass Village Town Councilman John Wilkinson, Capitol Creek rancher Steve Child and former Snowmass Village Town Manager John Young.The county Clerk & Recorder’s Office already has certified the candidate petitions filed by all four District 4 hopefuls, as well as by Newman and Owsley.
