Jennings County voters will go to the polls in less than three weeks. Among others, they will vote for races in the county for two commissioner seats.

The three members of the board of commissioners make up the county's executive body. The board is also the legislative branch of the county except in regard to the budget and other fiduciary matters, which are handled by the seven-member county council. Each commissioner receives an annual salary of $17,427.

The red button issues before the commissioners include overcrowding at the Jennings County Jail and, as always, roads.

In District 1, candidates must live in that specific area though voters countywide will vote on the race. A snapshot of the candidates' positions:

Shelter house fund challenge
Shelter house fund challenge
Clarence Wullenweber, left, marketmaster for the Jennings County Farmers' Market, accepts a $20 donation from Dan Gadd of North Vernon for the shelter house fund. Donations are going through the Jennings County Community Foundation, which will match $2,000 for every $4,000 collected. All money raised will go for the construction of a new shelter house No. 2 at the North Vernon City Park. The old shelter house was razed last March. The facility is the home to the Farmers' Market, which is helping with the fund-raising campaign. "I challenge all citizens of Jennings County to donate," Gadd said. "Together we can make this happen."-Staff Photo by Bryce Mayer
