Campbell County Primary Election: Chris Maloney, Jailer

Editor's Note: Campbell County has six countywide contested primary elections on May 22. Republicans will vote in five of those contests (Judge Executive, Commissioner District 1, District 2, District 3 and Jailer. Democrats will have one primary (U.S. Congress Representative in the 4th District). 

Additionally, there is a contested primary in Bellevue (Mayor) and in some parts of the county for Constable.

FTM will publish all articles written by the candidates in order to give the voting electorate a better understanding on how they may elect. 

We gave a simple prompt: Why Are You Running? Their answer is below. 

Campbell County Jailer

By Chris Maloney 

I am running for Campbell County Jailer because I feel the jail has serious problems that need to be addressed. I am willing to work as hard as I can to address them.

I am curious as to why anyone would run for office if their intention is to retire immediately after the election and appoint a successor. Would a move like that sidestep the mandatory audit required after someone leaves office? I really don't know.

I do know that if the citizens of this county trust me with the responsibility of this office, I pledge to do my best to deserve that trust and serve my full term.

Will my opponent make the same pledge?

My name is Chris Maloney. I am not a politician, have absolutely no political experience and I have no desire to make this my career. I would like the opportunity to serve my community with the help of those who have worked in the system before and then go back to private life after I achieve what I feel needs to be done.


I would appreciate your support.
