A Columbus man says he wants to fill the remaining term of Columbus Township Trustee, which will be decided at the Bartholomew County Republican Party Caucus Friday night.
Ben Jackson says if he is selected to fill the unexpired term, he will run for election for a full term next year.
Jackson says to the best of his knowledge, he is unique in this race because he is the only one who has committed to making the Trustee position his only job responsibility.
"I will have no other employment to take time away from the hard work it will take to turn this office around," Jackson said.
He says that if selected, the Trustee's office will be exact, efficient, ethical and friendly.
Current Trustee Fred Barkes has announced he's resigning from the post as of Friday.
