Uncontested races for this year's county offices include county attorney and county treasurer.
Republican Phil Havens is running unopposed for a third term as county attorney. It is a position where he feels he can do something for the citizens of Buena Vista County.
"I've found the work to be satisfying and exciting," he said. "It's a position in which you can have a fairly significant impact on the community, and I hope it's a positive one."
He feels he has represented the state of Iowa well in criminal cases. "We've tried to achieve some measure of justice in cases. I think we've done that," he said.
Democrat Kathy Bach runs unopposed for a third term as county treasurer. Before coming to public office, she worked for more than 20 years with the county.
"I decided to run again because I like my job, and I want to continue to serve the residents of the county," Bach said. "There are some new challenges we're going to face, but we have a good office staff and we'll meet them head on."
