(ANGOLA) - Steuben County Republicans filled two vacancies on the County Council Monday night with a pair of candidates who are on the November general election ballot. Ken Shelton was chosen for the District 2 seat which he will take over on August 19th when Sara Tubergan officially steps down. Shelton will face Democrat Sandy Sanborn in the fall. Tubergan stepped down as she is studying to become an occupational therapist. Meanwhile, Will Howard was selected to take over for John Ingledue who died after a short illness last month. Howard won the GOP primary in District 4 back in May. He will be opposed by Democrat Elten Powers in November. The terms of the vacant seats which were filled expire at the end of the year.
