What does it take to be an effective leader? The best one word definition of leadership that I have ever found is "influence." To lead, one must be able to influence others. Many think they are leaders, but if they would only glance behind them they would see that no one is following.
Phil Smartt, candidate for Hamilton County Commissioner - District 7 is a proven leader.
If the citizens of District 7 will take the time to look at the credentials, commitment, courage, conservatism and compassion of Phil Smartt they will conclude that he is the single most qualified candidate for the job. He is the only candidate with a background in community affairs and county government that will enable him to go to work for District 7 immediately upon election.
Many politicians can make a good public appearance but behind the closed door they are not the same person. I can personally attest that Phil looks the part in public, but more importantly, I also know the man when the door is closed. He is the real deal. Please consider Phil Smartt for Hamilton County Commissioner - District 7.
