Holmgren doesn’t file, could consider Independent run
Current District 1 Ellis County Commissioner Swede Holmgren confirmed Monday night his displeasure with both the Republican and Democratic parties led him not to file for re-election.
Holmgren said he is disappointed with the bickering and lack of progress coming from both parties.
He also said he will make a decision on running as an independent later this summer.
Independent candidates have until noon Aug. 4 to file for the November general election.
