STANFORD - David Hacker, an eight-year incumbent on the Lincoln County Board of Education who missed the filing deadline for re-election, is launching a write-in campaign this week.
Hacker missed filing deadline after he says he arrived at the Lincoln County Courthouse in time but found two sets of doors locked early. Both the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department and the County Clerk's office deny locking the doors early.
At the time, Hacker said he was considering a lawsuit against County Clerk George O. Spoonamore III for not accepting his petition to file.
On Wednesday, Hacker filed his intentions to run a write-in campaign, an idea he first dismissed as too expensive and difficult. "It's just more expensive, all the way around," but not much more so than a lawsuit, Hacker said.
