For the record


In the Wednesday, July 4, edition of the Journal Record, the newspaper inadvertently omitted some information from Marion County Commission District 1 candidate Keith H. Nichols’ portion of the story entitled, “Your guide to Marion County’s 2018 runoff election.”
Nichols said that he believes his business experience makes him a stronger candidate for the position.
It has given him experience working with the public and required him to make financial decisions, equipment purchases, job bids and manage funds.
He said that he will assess roads and funds available for major construction. Nichols said he will work with the sheriff on the jail problem, as well as focusing on school safety.
Nichols said that he will help recruit industries and promote expanding the county water system. He stressed he will work toward keeping  competitive gas prices and working to retain more of the gas taxes generated in the county.
The Journal Record tries to publish information correctly the first time, but if we fail to do so—either on the part of our staff or our sources, we will be glad to correct it.
To request a correction or clarification, call staff writers Scott Johnson at 921-3104 or Mandye Green at 487-3278.
