County Commissioner Candidates on Economic Development

Several county commissioner candidates mentioned economic development as a core issue facing the county.  As a follow-up we asked them to expand on their ideas for economic development, describe what they consider that to be and what a strong economic development plan looks like.  Each candidate was given up to 275 words for their response.  


Who's Running in Local Elections

Running for an elected office is a hard task. The Hernando Sun thanks the individuals who enter the race to serve the public.  It is frequently a thankless job, long hours if done correctly and a public official’s actions are under constant scrutiny. It is important for society to treat elected officials with fairness and respect, otherwise only the most corrupt, power seeking individuals will find it worthwhile to pursue an elected position.
