Boyd for governor
Duane Sherrill photo Gubernatorial candidate Randy Boyd made a bus stop in Smithville this past week during his 95-county whirlwind tour of the state leading up to the Republican Primary this August. Boyd told supporters in attendance that his business sense will be valuable in leading the state. He also noted that the opioid crisis is a growing threat that needs to be fought tooth and nail.
"I started my first company at 23 and it failed immediately,” Boyd told the crowd of supporters at the county complex during his bus stop in Smithville this past week. “You learn more from your failures than your successes.” Boyd noted his next business proved to be spot on, leading him to become a successful entrepreneur, business, and philanthropic leader.
