Teacher and coach John Cahill has filed his petitions to run for Sandusky County commissioner in the November election.

Cahill, 45, announced in early April he planned to run. He’s running as an independent.

The other candidates in the race are Wilson Forney, a Democrat, and Charles Schwochow, a Republican.

Other candidates can get into the race, but there’s not much time left, said Barb Tuckerman, director of Sandusky County’s election board.

It’s too late for a Democrat or Republican candidate to file, but independents have until Monday — the day before Tuesday’s primary — to file to run, Tuckerman said.

Cahill is a longtime language arts teacher and coach in the Clyde-Green Springs schools.

He thanked the people who signed his nominating petitions and said he’s ready for his first political campaign.

“I’ve begun putting together a campaign group led by Rick Egbert, who agreed to be the treasurer for my campaign” he said. “I am committed to working hard and running an honorable campaign. I will be attending different events all over the county in the upcoming months and doing a lot of listening to the citizens of Sandusky County”
