Fall is a busy time in Polk County. With primitive weapon deer season, high school football, good weather to finish up outdoor projects, wood cutting, and preparation for winter, the hustle and bustle of the culture in our rural county is something to behold. We are fortunate and blessed to have been placed here. I am especially blessed and grateful, to have the trust, you have placed in me, as the Polk County Judge. At this time, I wish to make known that I will seek re-election. Even during the bad economic cycle we are experiencing, I see progress. The resilience and hard work ethic that our rural culture teaches us is inspiring. I look forward to our future with continued plans to improve our quality of life for our families in Polk County.
