Two state and county incumbents and their past opponents filed this week to seek the offices in the May 20 primary elections in Paulding County.

Another former county commission candidate also filed, which could set up a third rematch.

Tony Crowe and incumbent David Barnett filed to qualify for the Paulding County Commission Post 4 seat. Barnett defeated Crowe in a runoff for the seat in 2010.

Vernon Collett filed to qualify for the county commission Post 3 seat. Collett lost a 2010 race for the same seat to incumbent Tommie Graham, who had not filed as of midday on Wednesday.

In a Georgia General Assembly race, incumbent Kim Alexander, a Paulding native, qualified to seek the Democratic nomination, and Bob Snelling qualified to seek the Republican nomination for the House District 66 seat. Alexander defeated Snelling for the seat in 2012.
