Councilman seeks senate seat
September 19, 2018
Independent candidate Ted Barney has officially announced his candidacy for Senate District 13.
Barney, currently a Green River City Councilman, is running against incumbent Democrat John Hastert and Republican Tom James. Since Barney is running as an independent candidate, he had to obtain 76 signatures of registered voters to be included on the November ballot.
Barney said he made sure to obtain way more than that in case some on his list weren’t registered when they thought they were. He said all of the voter’s information must be up to date in order for it to count.
