In an attempt to bring you any last minute information to help you make up your minds on who you will be voting for on Tuesday I asked each candidate if they had any last minute things to say to you the citizens. So far only two candidates have responded Greg Buckler and Steve Pendery.
Actually, Steve Pendery had nothing additional to say and only pointed people to the voter website on Cincinnati.com. You can check it out if you like but it is pretty boiler plate campaign stuff and you have probably seen most of the comments on door hangers or mailings. I am not sure if he is over-confident and mailing it in or if he doesn't take the site seriously - or perhaps he takes us more seriously than everyone else that didn't reply.
Regardless, here is Greg Buckler's (candidate for Jailer) message to voters:
First of all thanks for giving me an opportunity to reach out to the good citizens of Campbell County one more time before the election. My campaign has been based on experience and who is qualified for the job. I have attached my door hanger for you to review to show you what I have done in the last 12 years serving as the elected jailer of Campbell County.
The biggest thing that I guess I’m proud of is our community service program since starting this program in 2005 we have saved the tax payers of the county over $6,900.000.00 by providing FREE labor to our local government agencies and non profit organizations in the county. The second thing I’m proud of is how we have made the facility more efficient by using the latest technology in the corrections field and by making sure our deputies are properly trained and prepared to do the job they were hired to do.
I believe my experience as being the elected jailer for the last 12 years and being a police officer for 10 years prior gives me the qualifications and experience to be the elected jailer of Campbell County for the next four years. I’m also the only jailer candidate that has been endorsed by the Campbell County F.O.P. lodge which represents all police officers in the county with the exception of Newport who’s lodge did not do any endorsements in any races this election. Again thanks for giving me this opportunity and if you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.
So there you have it. I will pass along anything else if any other candidates respond and have any other last minute appeals to you the voter.
