Henderson County Republican Party chair Andrew Riddle plans to run against Michael Edney next year for the District 1 seat on the Board of Commissioners.


"I'm going to have three issues to my platform, which I'm still finalizing," he said. "I'm definitely going to run against Mike Edney."
A building contractor, Riddle, 37, lives in Flat Rock Forest. He and his wife, Denise, have four young daughters.
Edney, also a Republican, is serving his third term on the board. He served from 1988 to 1996 and was elected again in 2010.
Filing for the three Board of Commissioners seats is in February. The primary is in May. Also up for election this year are commissioners Tommy Thompson and Larry Young, who are also Republicans.
