Businessman and political newcomer Kenneth Ashcraft moved to Blackfoot five years ago because he landed a good job in the city. He would like to see others have the same opportunity to find a good job in Blackfoot and grow the local economy. That's why he's running for Blackfoot City Council Seat 1.
Ashcraft is vying for the seat against longtime incumbent Chris Jensen and local realtor Andy Hasselbring.
Ashcraft, who works in sales and marketing for Crary Industries (an agricultural equipment company), believes that Blackfoot already has the tools needed to attract well-paying jobs.
