Young, 65, has been a Clay County resident all his life. He is a Republican.
Young said he is tired of seeing things the way they are. He said he wants to help people and they are the reason he is running. He said he is not a politician, but just a man who wants to help.
"I want to do the people some good," he said. "I want to save the taxpayers some money and do the most for them."
Young understands there is a budget and funds are limited. He wants to do the best he can.
"I know we are limited on what we can do, but I want to do the most I can with what I got," Young said.
He is a member of American Legion, Moose and Eagles Lodge.
Young is running on the Republican ticket against Democrat Jack Withers.
