Voters in Jackson to decide city races

Tuesday, April 6, 2004

The 2,000 registered voters of Ward 4 in Jackson will have the opportunity to choose their city alderman today.

Incumbent Joe Bob Baker is running against Jim Litzelfelner for the post, the only race on the city ballot. David Reiminger is running unopposed for the other spot in Ward 2.

Baker owns B & B Salvage in Jackson, while Litzelfelner works in the occupational medicine business.

"We really need for people to come out and vote," said Baker. "It's an important election for Ward 4. They're expecting a low voter turnout and we're hoping people come out and vote. We've worked really hard on the campaign, tried to knock on every door, tried to get them to come out and vote."

Litzelfelner said he has appreciated the campaigning process.

"I've learned a lot," he said. "The most rewarding thing is to go out and meet a lot of people I didn't know."
