Neal Pinkston, executive assistant in the district attorney's office, will be the next Hamilton County District Attorney.
He was the only applicant for the seat being vacated by Bill Cox as the noon deadline passed on Thursday.
Longtime Public Defender Ardena Garth, a Democrat, will be opposed by Steve Smith of the district attorney's office. He is a Republican.
Criminal Court Judges Rebecca Stern, Don Poole and Barry Steelman are unopposed, as are City Judges Sherry Paty and Russell Bean.
Chancellor Jeff Atherton is unopposed. Joe Manuel and Pam Fleenor are seeking the chancery post being given up by Frank Brown.
Circuit Court Judge Marie Williams, Neil Thomas and Jeff Hollingsworth do not have opposition. Democrat Stuart James and Republicans J.B. Bennett and Catherine White are seeking the seat being vacated by Jackie Bolton.
Democrat Yolanda Mitchell is running against Juvenile Court Judge Rob Philyaw, a Republican.
The terms are for eight years.
Boyd Patterson, also from the DA's office, had considered seeking the DA post, but decided not to several months ago.
Mr. Pinkston never formally announced for the post, but took a low-key approach.
He was recently feted at a Republican event headed by former District Attorney Gary Gerbitz.
