On my watch, we have done quite well. Virtually all the positive job growth in the state of Kentucky the past 15 years has come in just 10 counties (out of 120). Campbell, Kenton and Boone are all on that list of top performers. Together our three counties have created more jobs than any other area of Kentucky. We have the lowest unemployment rates. In Campbell, we have seen a string of investments and job announcements made possible by the County’s economic climate and infrastructure improvements. In the coming months we will see much more.
A comprehensive Northern Kentucky strategy to combat the heroin epidemic has been created. We had the vision, and we have a plan. Campbell County has led the area in heroin arrests and is taking the lead with a substance abuse program to be installed in our jail.
Through it all, we are thrifty. Campbell County spends less per resident than any other full service government in Northern Kentucky. We provide high quality services.
Facts like these lead some people to think I have delivered and would be the best choice to lead the county for the next four years. I invite you to join them!
