Harrison County District 4 Supervisor Runoff

Going into the August primary there were 10 Democrats competing for the Democratic nomination for District 4 Supervisor in Harrison County. After that election, only two were left standing.
Next Tuesday, voters will hit the polls to vote between Kent Jones and Chris Fisher, both men wanting to take the spot currently held by Supervisor John Johnson. Johnson was appointed to the position at the beginning of this year and decided to not run for re-election.
Since the primaries, both candidates say they’ve been pounding the pavement trying to get their views to voters.
Chris Fisher said, “I think it’s going to take the same thing that it took to get to this point. It’s going to take hard work, it’s going to take communicating our plan and our vision and it’s just getting out and meeting people and making sure that we make contact with everyone that we can.”
Kent Jones said, “We think our message has been resonating. I have worked for the board for the past 10 years and I have a direct relationship with them. I’m from the area, went to school in the area. So, I understand the needs of the people in the area.”
The winner of the runoff will face Leisa Leisy in the November general election.
