Campaign Message I ask for your vote on Tuesday May 22nd so that we can fully execute our plan of making Boone County the best place to live, work, and raise our families.
I am seeking another term because I love this community and I love working for you each and every day. We are creating a world class economy and a transportation system that will improve the quality of life for all residents. Currently, I am working on major projects that will transform Boone County. Items like Amazon Prime Air’s first global hub and over $150 million dollars of highway projects are being designed and constructed. It is imperative that this work is completed successfully. I am asking for your vote so that I, along with my team can complete this work that remains unfinished. Experience and a proven record of accomplishments matter in this election. Implementing the plans that we have created requires leadership with management skills and a proven team of professionals to get the job done.
Proven leadership and experience are why I am the best candidate. My record of creating a community that possesses an outstanding quality of life and a low cost of living is unequaled in this region. When I became Judge Executive the property tax rate was 12.4 cents per hundred and today it is 10.4 cents. On expenses, we have held the line on costs and have fewer employees today than we did twenty years ago. All of this while maintaining a high level of quality services to our residents. My fiscal conservative principles and policies have helped grow our economy thus resulting in balanced budgets and the best credit rating of any county in Kentucky. I have fought for Boone County in Frankfort and Washington D.C. to return tax dollars back to our community for infrastructure projects. We have fought the drug epidemic and made substantial progress in reducing drug related deaths. Please visit my website for more information at
