By The Examiner staff

Jackson County Executive Frank White Jr. says he plans to run for re-election in 2022.  

White has held the position since 2016, having been appointed to it that year then elected by the voters later in 2016 and then a full four-year term in 2018.  

The county also has an elected nine-member legislature, and the sheriff and prosecutor are elected independently. 

County officials remain in discussions about such major issues as the building of a new jail.
