District Four Commissioner Candidate Randy Wells
Next week they'll know who their boss will be, and they're hoping to share a seat with them in city hall. Randy Wells and Penny Wheat finished one and two respectively in March to move to the runoff election for District Four commissioner.
Wells said that since the election he's continued going door to door visiting residents. He finished with 47% of the vote in March. Ten points higher than his runoff opponent Penny Wheat.
While Wheat has her experience as a former county commissioner, Wells said his roles in smaller groups shouldn't be taken for granted. He serves on the city plan board, chairs the city's affordable housing advisory committee, and is president of the Duckpond Neighborhood Association.
"They've seen me working on the issues at the neighborhood level," said Wells. "And I think really they said these are the things that matter particularly for this sort of a district race."
