Wagner, Malz to face off again

Scott County Commissioner Joe Wagner and former Commissioner Ralph Malz will face off for the third time after the two were the top vote-getters for the District 1 Commissioner's seat in Tuesday's primary election.

Wagner, a Jordan resident, defeated Malz, a two-term commissioner from Blakeley Township, in 1998. Malz challenged Wagner in 2002 and lost, and is challenging him again for the right to represent western Scott County.

Wagner received 699 votes, or 35.2 percent of the vote in the 5-person field. Malz received 524 votes, or 26.4 percent.
