The kerfuffle concerning the Clinton County Humane Society and its finances has led at least one additional person to run for office.

J.J. Tate, son of fired Humane Society Director Jim Tate, plans to seek an at-large city council seat in next year’s municipal elections.

The younger Tate, who’s 28 years old, says attending public meetings after his father was pink-slipped caused him to believe the city needs new blood in office.

“You know, there’s a lot of things that are going on in the city that I really feel people aren’t just clued into,” Tate says.
