Most of the local and state candidates showed up for the fish fry and stump talks in Jay, August 6. The few that missed would be sad to know that we estimate for every local citizen who showed up, another 50 to 100 voters are influenced. This is because the town of Jay is an older pioneer genetic base for the region and families and networks are centuries old. So, because of the deep roots throughout the county - even large parts of the South County are affected by what people in Jay hear and talk about. Conversely, the more shallow roots but much greater numbers of South County residents require attendance to be 4 to 8 times larger for the same "reach". Congratulations to all the candidates for participating in the GREAT AMERICAN TRADITION. Here is the AUDIO from the Jay STUMP TALKS. Feel free to note the time stamps for YOUR favorite candidates.
