A fourth and final candidate completed the field for the Leavenworth County Commission’s Fifth District race late Friday afternoon. Curtis Oroke, who currently serves on the Tonganoxie City Council, secured the required 400 valid signatures, County Clerk Janet Klasinski confirmed late Friday afternoon. Oroke’s bid for election became official in advance of the 5 p.m. deadline for candidate petitions. He joins fellow Tonganoxie resident David Frese as candidates running as independents in the race. Per social media, Oroke indicated he had hoped to secure the Republican nomination, but no delegates brought his name forward during the Republican convention about a week ago.
