AUGUSTA — Showing unity after a contested primary, two of the candidates for the Kennebec County District 1 commissioner seat are scheduled to endorse the victor on Wednesday.

The event is scheduled for 2 p.m. in front of the Kennebec County government building at 125 State St.

Patsy Crockett defeated Patrick Paradis, Augusta city councilor, and Carl Pease, of Windsor, in the June 14 primary. She’ll go on to face Republican Kristin Clark and independent Jeremy Pare in November.

Crockett, the incumbent, was appointed in February by Gov. Paul LePage to fill the unexpired term of Beverly Daggett, who died in September. That term ends this year.

Crockett was one of three Democrats to signal interest in the seat at that time; Paradis and Pease also put their names before the county Democratic Committee consideration. The committee forwarded the names of Crockett and Paradis to LePage.

Crockett, Paradis and Pease filed nomination papers to run in the primary. In unofficial results, Crockett received 662 votes, Paradis received 413 and Carl Pease received 131.

District 1 consists of Augusta, Chelsea, China, Manchester, Sidney, Vassalboro and Windsor.

If it rains, the event will be moved to the steps of the Old County Courthouse, which is two buildings north of the county government building.
