No new candidates qualify for local elections Thursday

No one qualified to run in local elections Thursday, but the two newest candidates to make a bid for Bulloch County commission seats shared hopes for future projects if they are elected.

Travis Chance, a former Statesboro city councilman, resigned that position since he plans to move to a home in the county that will accommodate his family. He and wife Shannon have three children. He is a financial planner who owns a registered investment and advisement firm.

Chance, who served on the Statesboro City Council since 2008, is a Republican running against incumbent Walter Gibson and challenger Sid Jones, also Republicans for Bulloch county commission Seat 2-B.

Chance hopes to work on improving city and county governmental relationships if elected.

Jeff Klare is a Republican candidate for Bulloch county commission Seat 2-D, running against Republican Timmy Rushing and Democrat Carlos Brown. The seat will be vacated by incumbent Robert Rushing.

Klare, married to Amy Kitchens, manages a family-owned business that helps veterans find jobs. He and his wife also own Southern Chiropractic and Statesboro Thrives.

The couple have two children from a previous marriage. Klare intends, if elected, to focus on law enforcement and county growth.
