Bakersfield City Council candidate Bruce Freeman stopped by “The Richard Beene Show” on Monday to discuss his race to replace the late Jeff Tkac in Ward 5.
The election is slated June 6, and Freeman is running against Noel Pineo and Ryan Nance, who has declined to be interviewed by Richard Beene and others.
“What an odd race,” Beene said as the interviewed started. “Did you think it would be this odd?”
“It is odd,” said Freeman before diving into his strategy of going door-to-door to talk with voters.
Freeman, formerly led Castle and Cooke development, is running in the race to replace the Tkac, who died in January. The race has been contentious, with numerous candidates initially, but has now simmered down to a three-man battle for the seat on the council.
