Ron Parson Is The Most Logical Candidate For Circuit Court Clerk

Monday, May 5, 2014

There are a few people this year running for the office of the Circuit Court clerk, but Ron Parson is the most logical candidate this election.  

Parson is dedicated to the citizens of Hamilton County, both personally and professionally. Parson has devoted over 40 years of his professional career serving local citizens as a member of the law enforcement community. During that time Parson has helped shape the lives of thousands of people in Hamilton County, but this dedication goes far beyond any professional obligation.  In his free time Ron continues to give back, from providing security and safety to local businesses, to teaching citizens the importance of personal responsibility.  

There is a saying, that the real test of a man is how he acts in a time of need, and during times of crises for the citizens of Hamilton County Ron Parson has shown again and again he can be depended on to exceed expectations. With proven results in hard times, Parson knows what needs to be done to ensure Hamilton County continues to be the Gold Standard in terms of fairness, honesty, and economic responsibility.  

Vote for Ron Parson for Circuit Court clerk.
