Randy Fairbanks Says He's Committed To Serve - And Response

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

For the past year, I have knocked on thousands of doors throughout District 1 and had the pleasure of talking with residents and community leaders about the issues and challenges facing our community.  Many of these discussions ended with the hope of electing someone that not only had a visible presence in the community but someone who would bring people together to find commonsense solutions for the issues that matter most to District 1 residents.

 

I am truly humbled beyond words in how District 1 residents overwhelmingly placed their confidence in me to be their voice and advocate on the Hamilton County Commission.  One that will work hard to bring more accountability, transparency and efficiency to county government so we can adequately fund our essential services without raising taxes.

Yes, it has been a long campaign, and I would not be where I am today without all of the volunteers and supporters who worked tirelessly on my campaign.  The outpouring of confidence and support the citizens have shown in me helped make this day possible.  For this, I will always be grateful.  Most importantly, I want to thank my wife, Marty.  Without her support and encouragement, I would not be successful.

District 1 has a bright future and I am committed to working hard every day to help make our community a better place to live, work and play.  As your public servant, this is my commitment to you.
