Campbell County Commissioner (District 1)
By Lloyd Rogers
I am running for County Commissioner for the same reason I volunteered to join the Navy–I want to serve my fellow citizens.
When I worked as Director of Veteran Affairs for the U.S. House of Representatives under Congressman Thomas Massie, we would often get requests from candidates for our support. One of the primary things we checked was did the candidate volunteer their time when it was not their name on the ballot. Were they running to serve others, or do they only work to serve themselves.
I worked just as hard on Congressman Thomas Massie’s campaign and Senator Rand Paul’s campaign as I am working on my own. That is why they made me their Campaign Chairman for Campbell County.
The second reason I am running is that I see opportunities for Campbell County that my unique skill set at the City, County, State, and Federal level will allow us to access. We need high-paying jobs, better access to the Ohio River, improved roads, and less traffic. I know where these opportunities are and I know how to access them. More importantly, I know what is coming and how to position the County to take advantage of even more opportunities.
Currently, Campbell County largely serves as a bedroom community to Boone County and Cincinnati where the jobs are. Campbell County has a major university and incredible access to waterways. We can leverage these advantages to jumpstart our economic development. We are sitting on a money machine in Campbell County, and I intend to unleash it.
Again, you have to be able to work across different levels of government to unleash our potential. I am the only person in this race that has this skill set. I have spent a lifetime developing these skills, and I cannot wait to put them to work for Campbell County.
Lastly, we want to set a tone in government that follows the Constitution and our founding documents. Many of the social problems we are experiencing result from our lack of knowledge and adherence to these self-evident truths.
I have been endorsed by the Northern Kentucky Right To Life 2018.
