CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Two Jefferson County Commission candidates who have deep concerns about the direction of Jefferson County government will square off in the Nov. 4 general election.
Democrat Patricia A. "Patsy" Noland and Republican Frank Kubic are competing for the Kabletown district seat on the commission. Commissioner Rusty Morgan currently holds the position but is not running for re-election.
The seat pays $30,800 a year, has a six-year term and all county voters can cast ballots in the race.
Spending and budgeting in county government has been a concern of Noland's and she said the issue remains at the "top of the list" as she heads into the general election.
Noland said she has been disturbed by the number of studies the current commission has paid for, like two to determine how pay for county employees should be structured.
