St. Louis Record: Young hopes to give Mo. residents viable third option

Jared Young, a Joplin businessman, wants to give Missouri a viable third option as an Independent candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Young, who has lived in Joplin for nearly a decade, declared his candidacy as an independent for the November 2024 election. Young previously lived in Washington, D.C., where he practiced law. 

"I believe that our two-party system has fundamentally failed us," Young said in an interview withThe St. Louis Record."Our national political leadership is so caught up in hyper-partisanship and dysfunction that they are failing to solve or even address the largest problems that we are facing as a country, like our huge national debt and our broken immigration system, our struggling electoral system."
