Jay Bailey for Osage County Commissioner

I have announced my candidacy for Osage County Commissioner District 3, and if you live in my district, I would like your vote in the Aug. 4, 2020, primary election.

Jay Bailey and family

If anyone would like to talk to me about county issues or know where I stand on a specific issue, please call or text me at 785-215-4391 or 785-828-3203, or email me at [email protected].

Here’s is how I stand on some current county issues:

  • We need credibility, accountability and transparency on our board of county commissioners.
  • We need to fix our tax problem. In the past 20 years our taxes have increased 394%.
  • We need to grow business opportunities and create a business friendly Osage County.

What I would do as a county commissioner is work my tail off to make our county a better place for all of us.

So all voters would be able to know how county commission candidates stand on current issues, I would like to participate in a town hall type meeting with an impartial moderator. Will my challenger agree to participate?
