    • Candidate's death forces voting delay

      By Steve Sands
      The Hawk Eye


      A Louisa County supervisor candidate's death Monday will delay the election for two board positions until December 15.

      Adrian Stephens, 66, of Wapello, died Monday morning at his home.

      State law provides for a delay in that race so county Democrats can field a replacement, according to Louisa County Auditor Kay Skipton.

      Potential candidates will be able to address a Democratic county convention at 7 p.m. November 4 at the courthouse in Wapello, according to county chairman John Delia Vedova. Skipton, the county auditor since 1975, said she believes the situation is unprecedented in Louisa County political history.

      "My first thought was, well it will just be three of them," she said Monday. She later consulted the Iowa Code and then verified the delay with the state Monday.

      Stephens, who was a retired construction worker, and Kenneth Foor, 45, an ironworker, were selected in the June Democratic primary.

      Incumbent Jack Estle, 69, of Letts, is seeking a second term, and is joined on the Republican ticket by Warren Kemper, 54, a rural Wapello farmer.

      Incumbent Democrat Leonard Elliott, a 20-year veteran of the board, is not seeking re-election.
