Mayoral candidate passes out free baked potatoes

WINTON HILLS, OH (FOX19) -

Mayoral candidate, Jim Berns, passed out free baked potatoes on Sunday afternoon.

Berns gave the potatoes away in Winton Woods at the corner of Dutch Colony and Winneste around 2 p.m.

Berns said that he ran out of potatoes within 25 minutes. Fifty pounds of potatoes were given away serving around 60 people.   

Why baked potatoes?

"I was at a Restaurant Depot on Mitchell Friday and they had number-two Idaho baked potatoes for nine bucks for 50 pounds," Berns told FOX19. "A bargain I could not pass up!"

The mayoral candidate said that he is planning similar potato-events in the future. Berns plans on switching to ice cream giveaways in the summer.  

Jim Berns, a Libertarian candidate, will appear on the Mayoral primary ballot on Sept. 10.

Berns will run against Roxanne Qualls and John Cranley. Current Mayor Mark Mallory's term expires this year.
