The general election is just a week away and the local candidates are getting ready for the last push of campaigning.
Kearney City Council candidate Jim Bunger is a jack of all trades. He owns his own business-- Kearney Media, and also works at Kearney Crete and Block as a truck driver.
Bunger says what sparked his interest to run for the city council was keeping taxes low.
"The 2 percent occupational tax and restaurant tax that they tried to push for...I wasn't a huge fan of it. When it went to a city-wide vote I actually lived outside of town when that went to vote and I was kinda glad it got turned down but I always felt that there was always an alternative way to raise revenues for the city outside of raising taxes," said Bunger.
He says that the council needs someone like him because he can represent the middle class.
"I feel that I can help bring in that blue collar feel back into the city council and where we are on construction jobs. Also being a small business owner I've kinda carried on and learning what it takes, and organized the city so that more people can be entrepreneurs within the city," said Bunger.
He also would like to work with high school students in the area and get them involved in some decisions.
He is 29 years old, which makes him the youngest candidate in the race.
