AFES Director and Fort Dodge community leader Charles Clayton joined Rob Jones on “Dodger Weekly” on KVFD AM 1400. Clayton announced he is running for the 9th District seat in the Iowa State House earlier this month. Here’s Clayton on how the decision came about.
He says while contemplating the opportunity to run it was an encounter with his nephew that made the decision a clear cut one for him.
This is Clayton’s 1st foray into politics at any level, he says he has been approached to run for city or county office before but feels like the timing to get involved is better now than prior.
Clayton is the democratic candidate and he will meet incumbent Ann Meyer in the November election.
