Kokomo Police Captain Kevin Summers has announced his intention to run for mayor next year as a Democrat, sparking a potential showdown between the former City Council member and incumbent Mayor Greg Goodnight.
And Howard County Democrats are furious about it.
Summers switched from Republican to Democrat in 2015 and chose not to run for re-election to the City Council. Then he ran unsuccessfully for County Commissioner in 2016. Now he plans to create a Primary battle between himself and Mayor Goodnight.
