The biggest issue facing the county is a lack of money coming in to pay the bills.
Three candidates for a seat on the three-member board of commissioners have different ideas for how to deal with that problem, including seeking additional money from the state, working with other counties to buy items together and planning county office budgets years in advance.
Republicans Anita Knowles, Gary “Pete” Sims and Ron West will square off in the upcoming primary election. The winner will face Democrat Daniel Hardcastle in the November election.
County commissioners serve as the executive body of county government, overseeing day-to-day operations, including hiring and firing department heads.
