Also, Bobby Junes is running as an independent candidate for Lt. Governor and will appear on the ballot in November. Mr.Junes came in last of 7 candidates in the 2016 Richmond Mayoral election with 0.37% of the vote.

Bobby Junes, the man with no plan is back, striking fear into the hearts of… well, nobody. May he never give up. Every election needs comic relief!

Weird, last week’s Free Press had a letter to the editor from Joe Morrissey saying don’t vote for Michelle Mosby for Treasurer. But I don’t see her name here. Is she maybe running as an independent?
