The race for the office of Madison County Board Chairman is now officially a two person race. Madison County Treasurer Kurt Prenzler announced his bid for the seat a little over a month ago. Current Board Chairman Alan Dunstan officially threw his hat into the ring on Thursday afternoon.
Dunstan tells The Big Z he believes the board is an effective unit of government.

Dunstan says promoting economic development and creating jobs for county residents has and continues to be a key priority for him. As for why he waited more than a month after Prenzler announced his candidacy, he said it was a "timing thing" with the filing period beginning Monday, and being very busy dealing with the other business of the county.
