They want to represent you in the halls of county government, in the state Legislature and in Congress.

“They” are the candidates in the Aug. 5 Primary Election. The top two vote-getters in the primary will advance to the Nov. 4 General Election. The winners will be empowered to make decisions on your behalf on issues of state and national importance, and on issues affecting public services in our county.
