Only one contested race for Board

Editor’s Note:

This is the third profile of candidates running in contested races in Jefferson County for the March 18 Primary Election. Today, Republican candidates for Jefferson County Board District 8 are highlighted.

MT. VERNON — Two Republicans are competing for a seat on the County Board for District 8.

The district covers Moores Prairie Township, Pendleton Township and the eastern half of Webber Township.

The two candidates who will appear on the March 18 primary ballot are Clifford E. Lindemann and Michael R. Bullard.

Lindemann said he is running for the position to represent the residents of Jefferson County as well as those who serve us by working for the county on a daily basis.

“We have many tough decisions facing our county and I feel it is important to have a voice that will get and give factual information on behalf of all our residents,” Lindemann said.

Lindemann and his wife Desra are known locally as partners with other family members in Lane’s Family Concession.

“You might better know me as Cliff and also know my wife, Desra,” Lindemann said. “In this partnership, we travel to many neighboring counties as well as others throughout the State of Illinois. We recognize that our county has so much potential with many wonderful opportunities waiting to be realized.”

Lindemann said he and his family have benefitted from the county for the last 37 years — as an employee of Continental Tire the Americas, formerly General Tire.

“I wish for other families to enjoy the same stability,” Lindemann said. “I am a Republican, but I want the best for all people; especially those that I look forward to serving. I intend to be devoted to the board and will work with the utmost diligence along with all other members. I want to do anything and everything that I can to generate a positive atmosphere surrounding our board.”
