With a promise to bring common sense to the office, Allen County cattle farmer Gene Weatherbie has tossed his hat in the race to become the next Allen County commissioner.

Weatherbie, rural LaHarpe, filed last week to represent District 2, which covers most of the northern portions of Allen County. 

Bill King, who was appointed to the seat in 2018, has announced he will not seek re-election. Iola farmer Craig Mentzer filed earlier this month.
