Laramie Mayor Brian Harrington has filed to run as a Democrat for the Albany County Commission.

As of the close of business on May 28, Harrington was the only Democrat to file for the commission seat that is on the ballot this fall according to the Albany County Clerk's election page.

He joins Republicans Chris Cleven, Troy Heien, and Julie McCallister. The candidate filing period will end on Friday, May 31, so more candidates may yet jump into the race.

Harrington's term as mayor ends in January. Harrington was elected to the city council from Ward I and also serves as mayor of the city. His term expires in January.

Wyoming's Primary Election is scheduled for August 20. The General Election will be held on November 5.

Instead, the top two vote-getters in each race for those offices advance to the general election.
