The slate is set for the Aug. 4 primary election in Greenlee County.

Three candidates are on the ballot for the County Board of Supervisors. Nick Castaneda is challenging incumbent David Gomez for the District 1 seat; both are Democrats. In District 3, Republican Suzanne Menges is unopposed.

Incumbents Ron Campbell (District 2) and Richard Lunt (District 3), as Independents, aren't on the primary ballot but will run in the Nov. 4 general election. Lunt will run against Menges, but there are no primary candidates for Campbell's District 2 seat.

There are also no primary candidates for county assessor, attorney, recorder or treasurer. Democrat Bryan Boling aims to succeed retiring county school superintendent Tom Powers, and is running unopposed.
