Seward Files Petitions

To Run For 15th Term

State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, yesterday filed nearly 4,000 signatures on nominating petitions for election to a 15th term representing the 51st senatorial district.

“The outpouring of support from the people who live and work throughout my nine-county district is truly gratifying,” said Seward. “I feel privileged to represent the 51st senate district and look forward to continuing to stand up for the issues and concerns that people discuss with me on a daily basis.”

Seward filed 3,099 signatures for the Republican party nomination, 605 for the Independence party nod and 171 for the Conservative party designation.

No Democrat filed petitions by the Thursday deadline, according by Mike Henrici, county Democratic deputy election commissioner, meaning the senator will not face a challenge from major party, although independents can still circulate petitions.
