Leadership is not just about attacking fellow candidates, a few cute phrases and fancy signs; it is about getting things done. We can’t afford to have an elected official serving the public with an aggressive and confrontational style. We need elected officials to work together for the citizens.
Phil not only has the experience, he has the professionalism to lead, communicate, influence and guide others in our county government to do what is right. I can say with assurance most county residents were against annexation by the city. Others say they were the “only” candidates that fought against annexation. Phil was instrumental in actually stopping the unpopular annexation by the city.
While others “talked the talk” against annexation Phil actually “walked the talk.” As chairman of the Hamilton County Waste Water Treatment Authority he joined with attorney Mike Carter and they found a legal way to stop the city in their tracks from annexing many neighborhoods in our district.
Phil is the only candidate opposed to our tax dollars funding a $100,000 a year “slush” fund to each of nine county commissioner to influence and buy votes. He believes if a project needs to be funded it should be in the county budget.
As a retired colonel with 30 years of service in the U.S. Army I know leadership and maturity. I can say without reservation Phil by far is the best candidate for District 7.
