Kevin Talbert Mounts Indy Campaign For Commissioner

Talbert campaign

Not a single Democrat signed up to run for the two open seats for Jackson County Commissioner in this year's primaries. 

But the Republicans will not run unopposed after all. 

A Democrat got on the ballot by write-in in Commissioner Position 1, and Kevin Talbert is on the ballot for Position 3 as an Independent (with a capital I, the party; Kevin points out that he's still a registered Democrat). 

Air time has been offered to both candidates; Talbert joins us to explain his positions.
