Hancock County Commissioner Tim Bechtol will face a challenger in the May primary election.
Paul Craun of Findlay, a construction professional with Alvada Construction, has filed candidacy petitions to run against Bechtol in the Republican primary on May 8.
Bechtol is seeking election to his first four-year term. He was named a commissioner by the Republican Central Committee to fill a vacancy after former Commissioner Phil Riegle was named county prosecutor in late 2016.
Wednesday was the deadline for candidate names and tax issues to be placed on the May primary ballot, 90 days prior to the election.
Other Hancock County officials will be unopposed in the primary.
