County commissioner races heat up

coverAs the primary approaches, local candidates are making their case. Around the region, county commissioner seats are opening up and incumbents and challengers alike are looking for votes. 

• Navigating the political stripes of the Haywood commissioners’ race

• Macon commissioner race spending pits conservative and moderate Republicans
• Swain commissioner candidates weigh in on the issues

Where’s the Jackson commissioner coverage?

None of the candidates running for commissioner in Jackson County have any competition in the primary. There are three seats up for election, but there aren’t enough candidates to require a primary. All the candidates — three Democrats, two Republicans and an Independent — will automatically advance to the general election, so stay tuned in the fall.
