Jason Applegate will seek the Democratic nomination for Floyd County commissioner. It’s the seat being vacated by Mark Seabrook (R), who’ll run for mayor in 2019. Applegate is a former business owner, and he has worked in advertising sales.
These days many folks know Applegate from his work with wife Angie Fenton at Extol Magazine. The candidate is pictured below with his campaign treasurer, Paul Kiger.
I met with Applegate yesterday, and we had an excellent chat about smart growth in the county. I suspect this will be his main platform plank; stay tuned for more.
So far, LaMicra Martin has filed for the Democratic nomination (she’ll oppose Applegate in the May 8 primary), and Shawn Carruthers remains the presumptive Republican nominee, as I’m not sure he’ll have a primary opponent.
