Richard Strick has filed the necessary paperwork to run for re-election as Mayor. Strick secured 174 certified signatures of registered voters, exceeding the necessary 79, to run as an independent candidate, campaign officials announced July 3. By Indiana election law, to run as an Independent candidate for any position, “The candidate must collect signatures of registered voters in the election district that total at least 2. percent of the total votes cast in the 2022 Secretary of State’s race in the election district the candidate wishes to represent to have their name printed on the ballot. Each signature must be duly vetted and verified by county election officers before approval of an Independent candidate. Strick acknowledges and appreciates the laws and individuals that ensure secure and accessible elections in our county. As of 5 p.m. June 29 all collected signatures were vetted and verified. With that approval Strick will be on the ballot this November for re-election as Mayor of the City of Huntington. Strick will face Republican Rob Hollinger during the Nov. 7 General Election.
