Peters to announce intentions

The political future of Allen County Commissioner Nelson Peters should be clearer by Thursday afternoon.

Peters will hold a news conference at noon in the lobby of the First Source Building, 200 E. Main St. to announce his plans regarding reelection.

Peters will be completing his second term as Allen County Commissioner, District 1, at the end of 2012. The commissioner’s seat in District 1 is up for election this year, and the deadline to file is Friday. As of Wednesday, Peters had not filed to run for re-election. Allen County Recorder John McGauley, a Republican, has filed for the position and has been actively campaigning.

Peters also served 10 years on the Allen County Council and has business interests within the community.
