Tanner says Ware asked her to run

Potter County Judge Candidate Nancy Tanner says current Judge Arthur Ware and his wife, Cathy, asked Tanner to run for judge a year and a half ago.

Ware has thrown his support behind former Mayor Debra McCartt and fired Tanner last summer.

Ware suffered a stroke two years ago and Tanner, his administrator, took up many of his duties.

Tanner says, "Cathy Ware and Judge Ware asked me to run, based on my qualifications."

McCartt says "since I left my Mayorâ??s post I have truly missed serving this community and this countyâ?¦I am ready to step back up and be the leader of Potter County.
