Both candidates are running as Republicans. The seat is being vacated by Representative Terry Brown.
Lasyone said his passion for his community and serving is why he joined the race.
"I work hard and I will always work hard, I will never lie to my constituents, I will be truthful, I will support them in any kind of way, if I can’t help someone, I sure wouldn't ever hurt them," Lasyone explained. “It's just my will that wanting to serve, that's pushed me into this position, and the position made itself available by the incumbent not running.
We’ll be speaking with other candidates next week.
