Ron Schmidt Running for Commissioner Seat

MADISON - After 16 years as the Madison County Commissioner, Jerry McCallum is not seeking re-election.  One of two Republicans to have announced his intention to run for McCallum’s District 1 seat is rural Humphrey farmer Ron Schmidt.  Schmidt told WJAG News that he’s impressed with the current board of commissioners, and that they care about people and do they best they can for the county.  Schmidt says that as a full-time farmer, he’d bring an ag perspective to the board.  The other Republican in the District 1 race is Louis Pofahl, a district representative for Congressman Jeff Fortenberry.  No Democrat has filed for the seat.
