Cut waste: Start with signs
My hat is off to John Riley for vowing in his campaign for Spencer County Judge Executive not to enter the “political yard sign war” until after May 1.
Yes, these signs have their usefulness in an election, however the clutter of our highways and neighborhood streets with yard signs months before an election can simply get out of control and become an eyesore.
What’s far more important in this election is which candidate bests represents your concerns for the future of this county. It’s not who puts up the first, last or most political signs
This small gesture is just testimony to the responsible way John is running his campaign, and how I believe he will run our county as judge. I’ve seen John’s inexhaustible dedication to this community first hand since he chose Spencer County as his home eight years ago. The personal time he has spent getting to know this community not just as a magistrate but as a citizen has been truly remarkable. Countless hours at meetings and with organizations from improving downtown, economic development to extending horse trails to seniors’ programs. His need to understand and be a part of this community has known no bounds.
John’s honesty, integrity and experience I am certain will be what each of you sees when he comes knocking on your door to do what is important in a campaign, talk with you face to face. And when you see what I see and choose to support him, by all means agree to put up a yard sign, after May 1.
