A second candidate has filed to run for the seat of first district Ellis County commissioner. Chris Rorabaugh, a former coach and teacher, filed by petition early this week.
He will appear on the primary ballot as a Democrat. With a filing deadline of noon Friday, only one other person has filed for that particular election. Butch Schlyer, former county health administrator, will run as a Republican.
That position currently is held by incumbent Marcy McClelland.
There have not been any filings yet for Ellis City Council positions that will be available.
