Jackson seeks lieutenant governor office as write-in candidate
Thursday, October 25, 2012
Former state Public Safety director and Highway Patrol officer Charles R. Jackson wants to be Missouri’s next lieutenant governor.
But, to win that job, he’ll have to get write-in votes throughout the state.
Jackson, 60, Jefferson City, filed Wednesday with Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s office as an official write-in candidate.
He joins Leonard Steinman, Jefferson City, as an official write-in candidate. Steinman is running for governor.
Nearly a year ago, Jackson — who is not the Charles Jackson who served on Jefferson City’s Council and worked at Lincoln University — began gathering signatures to be an independent candidate for lieutenant governor, but never collected the required 10,000 names.
