By, B.J. I mean, of course, Ben Nesselhuf, our hard-working District 17 Senator. The contest is still a year away, but I’m guessing Ben is making his intentions known early enough for other possible candidates for his current seat to step up.
I’m interested to know who that will be. And will Mr. Mining Equipment Jerad Higman be running again on the R side with his record of downtown economic development and revitalization (’cause lord knows we need more restaurants and apartments in this town–we don’t yet have one apiece for every man, woman, and child).
It’s starting to look interesting already for the Clay/Turner Senate District. Keep your eyes peeled!
