All three incumbents on the Sarpy County Board up for re-election this fall are running.

District 3 board member Tom Richards of Bellevue filed for re-election last week, joining fellow board members Don Kelly of Papillion (District 1) and Brenda Carlisle of La Vista (District 4).

Kelly, a first-term Republican, was elected board chairman Tuesday.

He succeeds Carlisle, who was chairwoman last year. Richards, a second-term Democrat, was elected vice chairman for 2016.

So far, only Carlisle has a challenger: Fellow Republican Debra Woodle Carlson of Papillion filed last week to run for Carlisle's seat.
