Fort Thomas Matters Election Bio: Brian Painter, Campbell County Commissioner

Brian Painter is running for re-election to Campbell County District 1 Commissioner/Provided

by Brian Painter
Candidate for Campbell County Commissioner

Hello, this is Brian Painter. I was honored to be elected your District 1 Commissioner in 2010, and I have worked hard to honor that trust you put in me.  I am running again for Commissioner and humbly ask for your vote on November 4th.

I point out this fact:  We have set the tax rate on property below compensating rate in 2014 and 2015 fiscal years.  These are the only two times this has been done since 1978. This has been without reduction in County services. We have saved you money directly, on your tax bill. Our spending per capita is still the lowest in the region.

Holding the line on taxes does not just happen.  It takes work.  Most of this credit goes to the County employees.  When we as leaders asked for a more efficient government, they delivered, by searching out ways to eliminate waste and operating more efficiently with the new technology. This savings has happened across the board in all departments and I am not keeping quiet about our success!

I will give one example, a case study, of how we save you thousands of dollars: In 2012 I looked into the fact that the County was still using fly ash to mix with salt to winter treat our roadways.  Several of our road specialists had taken specialized training and we came to the conclusion we could save money by going to straight salt on the roads.  Working as a team with the County professional management staff, we tested and tried the method.  Not only did we save overtime cost because we could carry more salt at a lower metering rate, we also avoided building another storage building.  I estimate that this switch saved the taxpayers over $100,000 in less than three years.

I do enjoy serving you as Commissioner and hope to continue to serve the Citizens of Campbell County.
