Judd Announces Mayoral Run

In a news release sent to the Council Grove Daily Republican, Kelley Judd has announced that he plans to run for Mayor of Council Grove in the next election.

The news release from Judd states, “My name is Kelley Judd, the son and namesake of my mother, Helen Kelley Judd. Our family roots began in Morris County in 1875 and I am the fourth generation of my family to live in the house my great-grandfather, T.W. Whiting, built in 1911. T.W. was an early pioneer in the building of Council Grove, from the Stella Theater to the Whiting garage and much more. He had a vision for Council Grove.”

Judd adds, “My parents, Helen and Charlie Judd, continued this vision by restoring the Hays House. Mom and Dad put Council Grove on the map because everywhere you went, when you said you were from Council Grove, the response was, ‘Oh, that’s where the Hays House is.’ People drove for hours to come to Council Grove and eat at the Hays House. Once here, they shopped the local businesses.”
