Paul Higdon and Rick Snyder to challenge Kuppers.
Anyone who wants to make a difference and be directly involved with public policy at the local or state level has until next Wednesday, Feb. 29, to officially put their names in the hat to run for office or a particular seat in government. The filing period began on Monday, Feb. 13, and so far, several incumbents and candidates in Macon County have formally filed to run, including chairman of the board of commissioners, Kevin Corbin, as well as commissioners Bob Kuppers and Jimmy Tate.
Three district seats for the board of commissioners will be decided on this November. District one of Highlands, one seat in district two, and district three within Macon County will be challenged this spring and fall.
