Brian Hessling helps run a family-owned peach farm in Palisade. He’s an independent who has voted for both Democrats and Republicans. He thinks a lot of people are just turned off by politics, on many levels.  “I think that the larger body politic is poison right now. And it’s divisive and it’s causing more harm than help,” Hessling said.
